Clay soils can often present challenges for gardeners. Successful planting in clay just requires preparation, a quick soil test and some easily gained understanding of your soil.
Clay soil has poor drainage. Do not dig a planting hole in clay soil and fill with imported soil for your tree - this creates a sump where water collects resulting in all sorts of problems and a very sad Fruit Salad Tree.
Spend some time to create a mound above the soil and plant your tree into that.
Thanks to earthworms and micro-organism activity, the organic matter of the mound will improve the clay soil below, resulting in a very happy Fruit Salad Tree!

We stock a wide range of Fruit Salad Trees, which all boast different fruit on the same tree. Each fruit variety retains its own flavour, appearance and ripening time. We graft citrus, stonefruit and multi-apple trees.
Our fast fruiting trees can be grown in the ground, or in pots on your balcony.
