Blossom Trees: March Garden Plants of the Month

The story behind Blossom Trees  

First fabulous blossoms, then a full crown of leaves, and finally fruit in summer and autumn — fruit trees offer it all. The apple tree (Malus), peach tree (Prunus persica) and plum tree (Prunus domestica) all fit perfectly with consumers’ growing desire to know where their food comes from and the ongoing enthusiasm for pick-your-own food plants. It is also educational and fun for children to see an apple, plum or peach develop. Blossom trees are available for gardens that have room for an entire orchard, but there are also small compact blossom trees that fit perfectly on a patio or balcony.
