A couple of years ago we planted two mandarin trees and a lemon tree. This year we had a bumper crop of fruit which inspired us to plant some more fruit trees. Apparently July is the best time to plant trees so yesterday we purchased a Tahitian Lime tree, a Louisa Plum tree (my favourite), an Apricot tree and a Granny Smith Apple tree (the best for Apple Crumble). Right now they just look like big twigs in the ground but the man at the garden centre assured us we'd have our first crop of fruit in the summer time - albeit a small one.
