These mini fruit trees are ideal for growing on your patio! You can choose from three or five mini trees, which will produce a variety of fruits including apples, pears and cherries. Thanks to their size they will be easier to manage and look after, and also easier to protect from frosts or any pests. Don't worry though, once the fruits bear, they will be the same size as they are on the regular fruit trees!
How To Protect Fruit Trees From Frost
Smaller fruit trees are understandably much easier to protect from frost than larger trees are. To protect small fruit trees, you can cover them with a fleece overnight that can be removed during the day once the frost has cleared. This process isn't as easy with larger fruit trees. If your fruit is growing along a fence or wall then you can cover it with a couple of layers of netting to keep the frost away!
