Maybe someone can me explain one thing.I want bay some apple trees.I was in a lots garden centres,i did check nursery websites.And what i saw,,,you can bay self pollinate trees,and trees where you need second tree,like pollinater(?)Question is-why to apple tree need pollinater-an other apple tree???I know to some plum,to pears if you want crop you have to plant other beside,but for apples???Formerly needed just some insekts.Something new in apple trees blossom structure?Now i'm confused...
