Post Bare rooted fruit tree's... I bought......
I've narrowed down my first list of fruit tree's to put in and I'm ready to order.
Does anyone have any good recommendations for mail order bare rooted fruit tree's?

And suggestions on good eating types (of just about anything) just in case there is something I've missed.
We have sandy soil, but the current fruit tree's all seem to be thriving in it.

Never to mind, found a great seller in Tyabb today at almost half the price - ($15 in comparison to $28 from an online bare rooted seller), and his good sized tree's are in large pots too. Another bonus was he also has a great selection of citrus. :cheersarm He has almost all the types I want.

So today I went shopping I bought....

Nectarines... Early rivers and Goldmine (white flesh)
Peach... Anzac White flesh (already have a yellow flesh mass producing).
Cherry... Lapins
Double apple...Red fuji / Golden Delicious
Manderin... Imperial
Found an olive tree on the property I didn't know was there :oops: so bought another to keep it company but can't remember the name.
Some more raspberry canes that will fruit this year :thumbright
Farming contractors on site next week with post hole digger to make some holes for me :cheersarm .
Along with the established, orange, lemon, plum, 3 nectarines I already have, plus three apricots, heritage apples, figs, quinces etc..and so on and who knows how many mulberries once I take cuttings tomorrow . I also found an avodcado seedling the other day, fingers crossed it's a hass and will grow in our conditions.
I'm moving my lime & young pear tree and columnular apple trees from home.
I think I should be set for the next few and the next few after that fruiting seasons.... open house at harvest time or farmers markets here I come :D .

Jayups,

Is the cherry self pollinating? If not, you'll need another compatible pollinator.

Cheers,alan

Thanks for your thoughtfulness Al.

I made sure all the tree's I bought were either self pollinating or complimentary to something else I bought to plant as well :D .
