I bought a pear tree from Aldi last year and had a good crop of 35 pears in the first year. Make sure the ground is well prepared before your plant the tree.

Buds starting to appear on the pear tree already.

Andip,

Don't let the size put you off buying the apple trees, remember they will have to be pruned every year. My pear tree is pruned back so that it does not grown too big. But I think I pruned my apple trees too hard this year and do not expect any fruit.!!

Of you only have a small space get onto the seedsavers website and see if they have a native irish species that would suit you. They have a wonderful selection and are very keenly priced

Thanks - realistically what's the minimum height I could keep them at bearing in mind they have the potential to grow to 7.5m.

Also, can the same be done with the pear & plum trees ?
