    Your  baby Juglans regia....walnut tree may take 4 - 8 years or more before you can expect fruit.
    These trees are far to closely planted. They grow large.
    Not a tree for a tiny garden."Juglans+regia+tree"&client=firefox-b-d&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjTyozt4rrxAhU1oVwKHX1XAhwQ_AUoAXoECAEQBA&biw=1280&bih=567

    Your Pyrus communis..common name pear.
    Maybe 3 years before it bears pears.

  • I think theyre 3 or 4 years old at the moment. Do you mean another 3 or 4 years? 

    Yeah they are too close...ive got 2 options....trim them back and keep them on the smaller side or carefully uproot the pear in January and move it somewhere else...

    Though if you see the rest of the garden youll burst out laughing...

    Ive got a mulberry and a jahanameya a metre away and then a pomegranite a metre after that...then a flower bush then an orange tree...then the walnut next to the pear then i start to get more sensible and space them 2 metres apart...a peach a manderine a lemon a sharon a plum a fig 2  grape vines another pomegranite an apple another apple 2 apricots a loquat and a tree i dont know the name of.

    They all look very tame and timid at the moment...but one day theyll probably take the garden walls down.

    Not sure what i was thinking. Obsession and greed might have something to do with it.

    I wonder if they can all be trimmed back to fit.

    Unless you are going to bonsai all of them I'm afraid you are being way too ambitious in your planting. Walnuts make huge trees and mulberries are pretty big too, they really can't be trimmed back to keep them small.
    Where is your garden? I guess it isn't in the UK as we would struggle to grow some of your plants outdoors.
  • Im in north africa...

    Libya to be precise.

    Theres recently been a keen interest in gardening here. 

    "Garden centres" are also quite cheap...

    A 3 year old tree of your choosing might cost between 7 and 10 british pounds which isnt at all bad.

    Both of those are much too big for that space.

    It would be most helpful if you could include this vital information in all future  posts/ threads.
    Either at the top near your name. (I never worked out how to do this!)
    Or at the end as I have done.

    Advice for hot dry countries will be very different to cool,cold, frosty, wet UK.

    As I said above....."These trees are far to closely planted. They grow large.
