New reply from NewHomeNewGarden

<p>Hi globalmouse,</p>
<p>What sort of height are you thinking? I was researching Apple trees for my garden last year, as I have an old apple tree which has become straggly through lack of care of the previous home owner. There are different what they call rootstocks which determine what sort of height the tree will eventually reach.</p>
<p>Are you looking for up to 2m, between 2-3m or over 3m? :-)</p>

fruit / nut tree recommendation

<p>Hello! We had a large crab apple tree in our garden which without warning last summer fell over – it looked like it was rotten inside although it was flowering and producing lots of fruit. We want to replace it, preferably with a fruit or nut tree….does anyone have any recommendations of something that will grow quite tall (as the crab apple was usefully blocking the view from neighbouring properties)… Thank you!</p>
