Hi, new to this forum. We have just become the proud owners of an allotment we have a fruit cage which we have gooseberries, blueberries, raspberry, blackberry, cranberry a nectarine and 2 unidentified small trees. We read our contract and we can't have fruit trees except cordoned fruit trees. So we want to get an apple, eating apple and plum or cherry and put them up against the edge what goes onto the dirt track so no one will get any roots but us.
What i was wondering was if anyone knew a good place to get some cordoned trees from, what are good types to have to give plenty of fruit but also anyone who has any advice or experience with cordoned trees i.e. how easy it is to grow them, what preparations needed or growing tips, etc.
All help would be appreciated, thank you
