Cabbage under cloch

Rotovating makes a hard pan.  It occurs at the greatest depth the blades can reach.

Sadly, for you, the best thing is human digging power and lots of bulky additions to the soil.

Drainage has to be sorted before cultivations.

I think with that lot the bees/ pollinators will beat a path to your trees.

Pollination of fruit trees depends on having compatible trees of the same sort nearby.  They are probably there already on other plots or in nearby gardens.

You can place a paper bag around a peach until it is ripe.  May look unsightly for a few weeks but the alternative is to buy peaches!
