We often concentrate on growing vegetables and forget the wide range of fruit we can in the British Isles, even without the benefit of a greenhouse or a polytunnel.

In terms of return for space and effort, often fruit makes more sense than growing vegetables!

When you come to buy a tree or a bush, do remember it could well go on for many years and it's worth investing some time researching so you get the best possible variety for your climate and tastes.

Don't forget, many fruits can be grown in pots and containers - even trees on dwarfing rootstocks so lack of space need not be a problem.
