What is a garden without trees? Not only do they provide shade and some of the loveliest foliage known to nature, but they can also produce an abundance of fruits which can be eaten fresh, frozen, preserved or if you are especially industrious, baked into pies and tarts. At Carpenter’s Nursery and Farm Shop we know our trees and we’d like to share our wealth of knowledge with you. Come in to see our selection of certified fruit trees to complete your garden and round off your table with delectable seasonal fruits!
First, let’s talk about ornamental trees that have been largely undervalued for their worth to you as a homeowner. Many are not merely ornamental but are classified as such because of the lovely blossoms that sprout in prelude to producing fruit. Crab Apple and Cherry trees are two that cross the boundaries from that which is ornamental in its flowering stage to that which is fruit bearing later in the season.
Traditional Fruit Bearing Trees
Then there are the usual fruit bearing trees such as assorted varieties of apple, pear, plum, cherry and quince. We take great care in selecting only the best quality trees that will produce from the earliest seasons.
We Suggest Dual Purposing Trees for Smaller Gardens
If you’ve a smaller plot of land to work with, we suggest dual purposing your trees. Yes, you’d like a willow for the shade it provides as well as a few of the Acer maple genus of trees for their shade and ornamental value, but why not add a few smaller fruit trees which are both ornamental and fruit bearing? This way, you’ll have the best of both worlds – nature at its most beautiful, but tastiest at the very same time.
