I have a small orchard which produces enough fruit for our family. Now I want to plant an avenue of trees (5 on each side) on a diagonal through the orchard to a focal point.
I am looking for something with gorgeous (and long lasting if possible) blossom - the later in the year the better because that is when we will be more likely to sit out in the orchard. But since there is the remainder of the year to think about, I would love to find something that is also interesting in other seasons.
I was thinking (after reading an article on here and looking it up) of the crabapple Red Sentinel. We don't need the fruit, but it looks gorgeous and we would just have to get busy with the crabapple jelly!
But before I spend a fortune on ten trees - any other ideas?
