We’ve come a long way from the solitary lemon tree in the backyard, and thank goodness for that! There’s a whole catalogue of amazing fruit trees that can be grown in the average Aussie backyard, both in the garden and in pots.
And if you think picking your own herbs is good, wait until you taste your own grapes, peaches or finger limes! Ripened on the tree and picked at just the right time, that first bite of freshly picked fruit is something to savour.
Not just for orchards, fruit trees are versatile garden plants that can be grown as hedges, espaliered to decorate walls or trained over arbours.
Maximise your home-grown harvest by finding a sunny patch for a few fruit trees in your garden.
