SAMPLE FRUIT TREE GUILD

SAMPLE FRUIT TREE GUILD

Hi! I am zone 7 (but its warmer than true 7). We are establishing a food forest of guilds and hugelkulturs. We are planting various fruit trees, including native cherries and other cherries. I can find very little true cherry tree guild info...just general companion plants for all fruit trees. We would love some better suggestions on doing a 7-8 story guild. thanx!


MEG: THE PIC HERE IS AN EXAMPLE GENERAL FRUIT TREE GUILD FROM www.terrapermadesign.com. GOOD COMPANION PLANTS THAT REPEL FRUIT TREE PESTS AND DO WELL WITH CHERRIES ALSO INCLUDE NASTURTIUM, GARLIC, ONION, TANSY. CURRENTS ARE ALSO A GOOD UNDERSTORY PLANT FOR FRUIT TREES.

I have red cherry seed and want to grow them. I'm in central Texas. I want to see if they will bear fruit here. What type of soil does require?
