Hello fellow growers, I thought I'd drop in and say hello as I have just started my own fruit garden. After just realising I have a Tayberry tree at work (it's Huge) I decided I had to grow my own as the fruit was delicious. I have a decent back garden but with just ornamental plants / trees and a decent unused area so over the Christmas period I've had a huge clear out, made 8 large raised bed planters and went on a shopping spree trying to find other fruits and berries that (hopefully) should grow in the North East UK.
After discovering the Tayberry at work and discovering how nice they tasted, I wanted to hunt down other fruits I haven't heard of before (generally because they aren't sold in the shops as they can't be commercially cultivated or are still native abroad) so I gathered and ordered the following list:
3x Blueberry variety
2x Raspberry variety
10x Pineberry (Hawaiian Strawberry)
So as you can see, quite the collection of things you wouldn't see down the shops. I am going to be documenting how well each plant grows on Youtube and I have an introduction video to the plants before I planted them here (if the link works): https://youtu.be/mcG7pNMjymM and I would love it if others would subscribe to my channel and follow along with the progress of some of these unusual plants as I I have uploaded all of the planting videos to here
If others out there have grown the above, it would be good to hear how well they have done in your general location to see how they compare to the north east where I am based, thanks for reading.
