How many fruit trees?
Hi, I have asked this question in another post but, as of yet, have had no replies. I have a raised bed measuring 240cm x 80cm x 40 cm deep and wish to train dwarf stock fruit trees in there. My questions are, how many trees do you think I would be able to put into the space ( I think I read somewhere that some trees as cordons can be planted 2 foot apart)? Can you suggest any trees to go in, I'm thinking along the lines of a dessert apple, a pear, plum or damson trees? Are there any combinations that should be excluded? And, would I be able to grow any other lower growing plants toward the base of the trees? Many thanks for any info' you can give.
