Thanks Verdun, will do. I want something that has nice blossom, but will be productive too, so I will ask their advice.

Thank you guysIt is a sheltered spot that I have in mind, and it will get all the sun in the summer months. It is right by the wall of the house,and there are some other pear trees around, so I think I will go for it.Thanks for the encouragement!!

My hubby has made me a container which for the last couple of years has been home to a conifer...yes very inspiring I know! I have decided that I would like a fruit tree, probably a pear. The container is fairly big 2ft x 2ft x 3ft deep so I think a miniature would look nice, but not sure what type. I have seen one of those trees that has got 3 different types grafted onto one base, so it is reckoned to be self fertile(I do only have room for the one tree).

What I want is your expert opinions I wasting my time, and if so, what would you go for?

OOoooh...thank you Obelixx........just need the Roast Beef, Yorkshire Pudding and home grown roasted taters and my carrots!!! Oh heck, I'm hungry now and its eleven o'clock in the evening Hubby has made Redcurrant jelly, and Redcurrant and Cranberry Sauce with my Redcurrants-I managed a kilo of them this year, so Ch******s should be good! I have to make the Horseradish as he has made such an effort with the Currants.

Hey GWRS, I have just seen your post about your Horseradish sauce. My hubby has had me growing it, but I'm ashamed to say that I don't know how to make it fresh (ashamed, as I work in a kitchen-how bad is that???!!). Do you have a recipe that you could share please???

I agree with Ladybird-give it a good feed, keep it watered and wait until next year. It will produce more stems once it has got established.
