What fruit trees to plant in my new garden
Not only I am new to this forum, I will also be new to Georgia in two weeks. We will be moving into our new house in Athens and for the first time will actually have a yard in which we can grow veggies, fruits, herbs, etc. We are fortunate that the current owners of the house have done a great job with most of that... well established herb and vegetable gardens await us. However, I would love to grow some fruit trees and was wondering what the best varieties for the area are?
I'm also unsure about the quality of the soil. Apart from the vegetable garden, which has good quality top soil, the rest of the yard is made up of the ubiquitous red Georgia clay. I think the best thing to do would be to send a sample off to the local extension office for testing, but in general what kind of fruits should I be looking at?
Recommendations for nurseries would also be very welcome as would any other gardening tips.
Many thanks in advance,
