Imagine delicious fruit, grown right from your home, in a wide variety of colors. Planting in the late winter or early spring is generally the best time to get your new fruit trees in the ground. Bare root stock should be planted in winter, while raspberries and blueberries can be planted into spring. You can even grow strawberries in hanging baskets. Fruit trees are surprisingly easy to grow in a backyard setting, and they yield years’ worth of beautiful spring blooms and plentiful fruit.
