Fruit trees are some of the most rewarding trees to grow providing tasty and sweet treats each season for you to enjoy. Many people adore the luscious look of these trees as they mature with beautiful ornamental flowers and canopies. Fruit trees can grow in nearly any climate but require close monitoring to make sure pests don't cause any problems. They require a strong commitment to pruning and maintaining the tree as well. It's important to research which fruit trees can thrive in Alberta's harsh climate. Fortunately, at Countryside Garden Centre, we grow only the finest trees for Alberta, so you can rest assured that the tree you purchase from us is ready to thrive in our province. Some of our most popular trees are apple, crabapple, and cherry trees, but we also have a wide selection that goes past these species. We also carry apricot, olive, pear, plum, and nectarine trees that are both beautiful and productive in the fruits that they produce. If you are thinking about planting a fruit tree, there are a few things you should take into consideration such as the space in which the tree will be planted, how many trees you would like to plant, and the other factors such as the amount of sunlight they will receive throughout the day. Most fruit trees require at minimum an area between 25 feet by 25 feet to grow and thrive. If you plan on planting dwarf varieties, this will require less space. Each tree should be planted in fertile soil and gets plenty of sunlight each day. Your fruit tree should also be near a compatible tree for pollination. Each tree should work side-by-side to bear fruit properly. Contact us today to discuss if your soil is fit for fruit trees, if you have enough room to plant multiple trees, when to begin planting your orchard, and what trees are compatible with one another to pollinate effectively.
