We have a few fruit trees to put in the ground and then hopefully watch them grow over the coming years. Just wondering if there is any particular order we should plant them in? Snow Quen Nectarine, Victoria Plum & Turkey Fig trees. Any recommendations greatly appreciateda!

Autumn/winter are a good time to plant any trees just dont do it when the ground is frozen. Not sure why you would expect 'an order' to plant them in?

If they are bare rooted or even in small pots general rule is the sooner you get them properly planted with a good root run the better.

Thanks Chrissie, we have some farm manure to mix into the soil first and bonemeal to help the roots, i just thought that perhaps some trees partnered by best with others, but it sounds like it really doesn't matter what sits next to what.
