This is where the orchard will be. I thought at first there would not be enough sun on this side of the house – it faces east – and that the south-facing part of the garden would be better. However, it is much windier on that side of the house and the earth is more boggy and it turns out that for pollination wind is bad. The bees do not like it and the most important thing for fruit trees is good drainage. I have been watching and the east facing site gets at least 6 hours of sun in the winter and will get more in the summer so have decided this is where the trees will go.
