Fruitcake which trees did you get?

You are making me want more fruit trees - may be next year they will have a good deal on similar  

Weyplotter at least you can't get peach leaf curl  

GWRS is an interesting way of buying seeds lots for this year

Roy have you planned what you will be growing?

Done some digging today dug and emptied two large bags of horse manure then turned the muck and filled them back up - hoping this will help them rot down faster by being turned 

The next time I want horse manure I would like it well rotted not fresh ish, want to be able to use it on some raised beds in spring one doing ok the other still slushy like cow poo

Oh what Weyplotter more info to look up re your tree

I do have a pop up frame netting thing to go over my raised bed that they will be going in hope that keeps the butterflies off from laying eggs, I did well one year growing them but not had much cauliflower success more the leaves not the middles 

I have to get more seed compost that is what I had left from last year

So who is going for fruit trees?
