    Default Plant fruit in the spring

    Okay, so now I am thinking about planting more fruit in the spring. I did some blueberries, raspberries and blackberries last fall, and have a gooseberry and some currants here.... now am thinking about a mulberry or moerbei bush or tree this spring.

    You folks have any ideas or suggestions??

    Well I can't say about native Dutch suppliers Tom, but loetz is in Austria and he mentioned Walter Lang, in Bremen. Which might be a bit of a drive, but it's a lot closer to you than me.

    I've mailed them so far, as their website only offers sales to German addresses, but I'd have thought you could get some shipped cheaper than me, though that's what I'm hoping to do.

    Gonna try their Buckwheat first if I can arrange it......

    Strawberry's and blackberry's seem to to alright. strawberry's don't take up a lot of space, a good thing is this small country .

    Yep... have a whole section devoted to strawberries but its rather shaded....and far from the house which means birds might go after the crop. We will see how it goes this year...

    Etos winkel korting bijen pollen volgende week; drie voor tien euros.

    It's a good natural nutrient for honig wijn instead of DAP. -

    Just bought a 13 year old Elstar apple tree (with a trunk about 5 cm in diameter) that had been dug up from an orchard. The guy at the farm didn't say so, but in reading about it, it seems I need another variety or a crabapple to pollinate it. Can anyone confirm this?

    The farm...
    http://www.fruitbedrijfhoekstra.nl/

    I may just wait to see if this thing survives. It is about 2 meters tall, but had a root ball smaller than a soccer ball. The guy said he guaranteed it would grow,,,,and it only cost 10 euros, but I am skeptical. They also sell cider in vacuum packs with no sorbates or preservatives, so might make a good base for something.... SO many ideas, so little honey....and honey money
