    Evening all,

     

    Poundland are currently selling the above in bare root form for… £1 and I did get a few but I was wondering if it is worth investing in a few more but this decision relates to the following..

     

    My aunty has planted 4 fruit trees in two different big patches and I would like to utilise the space between so I was thinking of using one patch as a ‘forest’ garden style fruit patch.

     

    The other I am either going to do the same or I will try to grow the above in cordons just to see how it goes.

     

    If I was to try growing it in cordons would it/could I fit in more plants as opposed to growing in bushes (thus I will be in poundland asap again)? Are yields increased?

     

    How would I go about doing it?

     

    Thanks for your help,

     

    Samuel
