If the rules say none officially but we'll allow one until we get it passed by the council and you plant 3, what do you think we're going to say?

They should have planted a self fertile fruit tree

Bears will sell ...

OMG!

You are on the local council, accepting bribes to post-approve triple-development of parent-gardens for offspring bunker-houses. Therefore working bears can live in the woods, anyone can get a shotgun licence to shoot them, and your conservative voters will write letters to the editor to say everything is super.

They did. X3.

Not even patio ones either. Bloody huge ones.

The end result will be no one will be allowed trees at all. Which is what we wanted to avoid.

The council forbids fruit trees on allotments?

You have to be careful with trees. Their roots can block your drains, and uproot the conservatory! Just be sensible! :huh:

Well if they are self-fertile they only need one. Can I recommend:

This solution

or perhaps some of these

Both organic

Take it they aren't on dwarfing root stocks? Our council allows trees to be up to 25% of the space as long as they are on a dwarfing root stock and kept below a maximum height (circa 2m iirc).

Edit: none at all seems a bit harsh. Some fruit bushes can be as big as a (very) small tree.

Without written permission off them and our committee.

I assume to confirm root stock and position to avoid them being an issue.

they're entitled to say no - trees like sheds make shade and create all sorts of issues.

Thanks :)

I thought girdling a tree killed it tbh... that site says its used to accomplish two primary goals, namely to increase fruit size and earliness of harvest. Both of which sound good.

We have asked if we can allow one tree per plot.

But then there's another issue.If we have split a plot into two half plots - can they have a tree each? Could easily end up with silly numbers of trees if we split one up into quarters ...

We also have planted an orchard on a piece of communal land which won't shade anyone or cause any issues. People deliberately chose to plant trees on their plots when there was this other much better option.

It is.

but if there weren't rules about trees people would just fill their plots with them. Oh wait.

Nothing necessarily wrong with that. Pyramid M27's wont be any larger than a Jerusalem choke and open centre they'll be about the size of a gooseberry bush.

True, but you know what these Aldi specials are like, full of diseases, unlikely they will last the year
