We love trees, and in a small garden I thought it would be lovely to plant a couple of fruit trees. Earlier this year I had the big excuse of exploring local nurseries, and found a Concorde Espalier tree and a Doyenne de Comice. Knowing that one ought not to let the trees bear too many fruit, I picked so many small pears off. I thought there would be a further drop so left two on the Concorde and obviously more on the Comice tree. There was no June drop, and we are now starting to enjoy our harvest.
