I think you would be wise to buy one and one that flowers in the first couple of years as some take up to ten years to flower and to grow one from seed or cutting would be a challenge .

I agree ,fruit trees bring a lot of joy to a garden. The blossom is beautiful and looks confetti and the seeing the fruit on trees looks marvellous and you can eat it all and the same with fruit bushes. I am going to have all fruit trees from now on ,as old trees go and space occurs in will go a fruit tree. I have quince,apple,plum,greengage ,bramley and some small fruit trees I grew my self from cuttings .

Yes its annoying those vegetarians are mighty hungry and are out in force. What a problem and how to solve it. On one hand one feels guilty about killing the poor things ,by putting down pelts we are killing the wild life so we are told. I have found there is no one way as fast as you dispose of them there back and the birds cant keep up. When I find snail eggs I feed them to the fish and try allsorts of devices to stop the them until the end of the season and then then they go forth and multiply a lot more!
