  5. danielbuda on March 25, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    How close can you plant apples peaches or plums to a house if you keep it no taller than 9 feet?

    Lovely garden beautiful trees also..

    But lets be completely honest it’s unrealistic to be able to grow that many trees into a mature size even quite heavily pruned back.. just the Reed Avocado will need atleast 12×12 ur talking about a tree HALF its proper size the Hass & fuerte? those do grow more of an upright shape (hass tends to loop down a bit more then fuerte) those 3 trees alone will take. 10+10+12 feet equals. 1,024 square feet. plus the lemons, figs, guavas etc. no way to Actually grow them all to proper size Unless u Frankenstein them into 5 foot trees. figs guavas and lemons can produce fruit quite well at that size but not an avocado. and u got 3 of them.
    I mean even at 5 foot each tree U would need 10,000 feet because 5 feet each by 20 trees equals that 10,000 square feet.

    i honestly would have grafted all 3 types onto the reed (hass + fuerte) give the other some room to grow that way…

    ps; I’m a pomologist in case ur wondering whether i have some clue as to what im talking about or am just some being negative on youtube…

  13. Maria Salazar on March 25, 2022 at 6:18 pm

  14. Garden of Truth on March 25, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    It’s not good for the monarch butterfly for you to plant tropical milkweed in non tropical area it keeps them there and they don’t survive the winter they need to go further south South America or they can survive the winter people in non tropical areas plant tropical milkweed are helping destroy the monarch butterfly

    I am having a big problem with squirrels, birds and other critters in my yard getting into my fruit trees. We live in Chicago and tried netting but the winds shook the fruit off the trees. Any suggestions on what works best to deter animals from the trees?

  16. Matthew Farrell on March 25, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    I will have to show this to my gf, she thinks I am crazy, I have 25 fruit trees in a 60sq meter area lol
