fruit hedge

Aims: The fruit hedge plays the role of a fence and is composed of fruit trees. This type of hedge has many advantages: it separates two areas of a garden, of a landscape or a field, and it produces fruit for people to eat. The yield target for the fruit hedge is lower than for an orchard, but it is easy to create for somebody who wants to produce and eat his own fruit.
Children and adults will enjoy harvesting these fruits, sharing friendly and delightful moments while bringing harmony to the nature.

Adult height: Up to 4 metres which facilitates harvesting. While planting, alternate trees with a tall trunk and fruit trees with a smaller development, so each plant has a good access to the sun light.

Period of interest: Mainly in summer and autumn, when there is fruit.

Planting distances: Generally, keep 1 to 1.20 metre between each plant, and be sure to leave at least 6 metres between the trees with a tall trunk.

Pruning: The fruit hedge is beautiful when it is not pruned. But pruning may be necessary to increase fruit production and to control the space occupied by the trees.
