Growing your own fruits is close to magic, right? Well, fruit orchards are the thing for you, and you’ll definitely enjoy both their taste and appearance.
You may dream of having a huge garden, but fruit orchards are an excellent substitute for those who live uptown.
All you need is some hybrid sorts and a little space. Growing your very own organic fruits is easy! The columnar or urban fruit trees are also known as Minarettes and Pillarettes. The tasty fruits grow in clusters, and the trunk is some sort of a spire.
Having a few Minarettes will make a huge difference in your small garden or porch, and there’s nothing better than watching your own organic fruits grow.
How to grow your own Minarettes?
You won’t have any trouble at all. Minarettes grow amazing in zones 4-8, and tolerate different climates. But, don’t even try to grow your tiny trees is the place where you live in is too hot or too cold.
Your marvelous dwarf trees enjoy sunlight and regular watering. Don’t let the soil become too dry or too soggy, and use a nice fertilizer.
Give the containers enough space, and 2-3 feet are just enough. Grow two different sorts to provide an excellent cross-pollination.
Remove any damaged branches, and the tree will grow stronger. This is especially recommended in the early stage of growing, but you won’t have to do it that often once the Minarette grows big.
The Thompson-Morgan fruit tree collection is a nice option, and it offers the following dwarf trees:
- Cherry “Sylvia”
You’ll fell in love with its gorgeous pink blooms. “Sylvia” will be the star of your garden. Origin: Gisella 6.
