I may well do that Dove, our allotment is a new plot so we can pretty much do what we want with the majority of it (setting it out). We need to have some trees towards the back so we can grow things in the ground beneath that don't particularly like full sun (blueberries, rhubarb etc). The birds are the biggest pest there so we're going to need to put netting up.
Flo as a general rule with fruit I've found having more than one of each gives better results individually, I'm not yet sure on cross pollination so I'm probably not the best person to ask. My garden at home is small and packed with plants already so if it wasn't for the allotment I wouldn't be able to even consider growing any more fruit trees.
