We moved in to a new house 2 years ago. We have a space of approx. 40ft x 50ft which we hope to plant as an orchard and small veg patch. We want to sow varieties of cooking apples, eating apples, plums, pears and maybe cherry trees. Somebody mentioned to us to get dwarf varieties, then we would be able to pick the fruits easily – would you agree? Also what type of each species would you recommend? Also what breed of rhubarb is nice – want to cook with it, so need a sweet variety. Thank you Muriel
There’s lots more background information on fruit, varieties etc at: https://gardenie.wpengine.com/gerrycategory/strawberries/?id=5451
The best variety of rhubarb is ‘Timperley Early’.
