Plant Those Pears!

{a pair of pears}

Long time no see!

Now is the time to plant those fruit trees that you have been dreaming about all summer.

I definitely have a few fruit tree planting plans up my sleeve.

If you buy your potted-up trees now, they will be going to sleep and will have fewer problems being transplanted into their new homes.  They will gather strength over the winter months and will wake up ready to do their thing in the spring.  For the people in charge of the digging, there is the added bonus that the ground isn’t yet frozen solid.

The above picture is of two of many pears that this particular tree produced for us this summer.  It was only planted a year ago! The sunny wall is the perfect position for it, as it loves the warmth that radiates out from the brickwork.

So go forth to buy your trees for 2012 – I’ll see you there!

    1. Thank you – I had a little blog holiday as the finca jobs overtook me for a while. Fingers crossed for a good pear crop next year!
