Family Tree Planting - Four Trees in One Hole!

Family tree plantings are a selection of deciduous fruit trees planted very closely together, with all branches pruned to grow outwards. Without looking closely, the trees appear to be one.  Family tree plantings means that fruit will be harvested over a longer period with several varieties, rather than a glut over a week or two, while only taking up the space of one tree. 

This is a great way to incorporate more varieties, and is much easier than a double or triple grafted tree.  Check out our Family Tree Planting video and more info here.
