Our Organic Gardening Magazine can provide you alternative DIY tips for natural pest control on popular kinds of fruit trees, simple methods of growing different types of berries, planting greenhouse grapevines and more.
With a small backyard garden, we can only consider dwarf trees.
Dwarf fruit trees and soft berry-shrubs with 2 meter (about 6.5 feet) tall; or less are our favourites.
Growing fruit trees is not the same as growing flowers. Besides the essential soil; a helping hand from those garden worms; and the great help from the nature; you have to also study how to handle the challenging garden pests; before you can get your optimal results.
By watching your trees closely from time to time with a little extra attention; you will learn to know; when and how to feed the trees with the necessary fertilizers and water.
You will discover simple ways to prune fruit trees; and harvesting fruits.
There are more than one type of berry in our garden. I love the most is strawberries.
Besides strawberries, we have gooseberries, raspberries; cherries; and many more.
The most interesting is to watch the trees; or vines growing from bare-root stocks to matured trees; and to bear your sweet juicy fruits; with an insecticide spray free concept.
If you are interested in tropical fruits tree like Avocado plant and citrus fruits; but you have not a big space and essential temperature to grow them; you can still experience it by growing them indoor during the cold season; and place them in a greenhouse, or a strong wind and extreme heat protected environment in the spring; when the frost is away.
In this way, you can gain more gardening experiences for your future landscape.
If you have very little time to manage your garden; but you wish to taste some great organic fruits; you may try planting those care free annual Cucumbers; Cape Gooseberries; and Squashes during the warm season.
In a minute you will be meeting our dwarf Apricots tree, Apple trees, Dutch blue Grapes, Pear trees and a wonderful ever-changing small fruit orchard.
