Thanks all - they're now in (with a bit of rootgrow.) Good job I was careful when I first put the fork in at each position as all three spots had a whole lot of bulbs which I managed to lift without too much damage. Then I had to find spots for those without disturbing any more, of course - it could have gone on forever!
Now to force myself not to let them fruit for a year or two. They were:
Pear duo: Conference and Bonne Louise.
Apple duo: Elstar & Golden del.
Plum duo: Victoria & Reine-Claude.
Together with my other fruit trees, I'll either have the fattest squirrels in the country or there'll be too many fruit for them and they'll have to leave some for me!
