Fruit tree rootstocks height and spread - advice please
Hi, I have a small suburban garden (roughly 30' x 18') with no lawn but three large beds. There's room in each bed for a fruit tree (I fancy crab, damson and apple) but I'm confused about rootstocks. If I get ones that don't grow too tall e.g. 8-12' then they may be bushy too low down and get in the way of other shrubs and me tending my beds. But if I get one any taller to give me the bushiness above head height I'm worried it'll be out of proportion for the garden. Any thoughts please?
