Have levelled out the end of the garden here. Plan is to plant an auchard. A mix of Apple. Pear and Plum trees. Allong with mountain ash and Hazel as a wind break round the sides. Any advice? What time of year is best to plant? Do I need to be thinking about doing things to the soil now for planting backend? @Big Vern I know will have some knowledge given the fondness of cider and pruning!
