fruit trees and roses sw Missouri
I'm new to this forum and thought it would be a good place to get some local advice...I live on 2 acres that are completely blank...no trees. We are putting in a lot of red maples, etc. I want to plant some fruit trees and was wondering what everyone's experience has been with these: Redhaven peach, Montmorency cherry, Kieffer pear, Golden delicious apples? I looked them up on the uofM extension website which has a lot of good info but is overwhelming as well. Is it ok to plant fruit trees right now or do you have to wait until later? Anymore suggestions that do well here?
Also, does anyone have a Yoshino cherry tree? I know this sounds like a lot of trees, etc, but I have a ton of space, and need to get trees in this year.
One more question, what are everyone's favorite roses that grow well in the Joplin/Carthage area? My mom loves knockouts but I don't? I don't have a ton of time to baby but love big blooms... thanks for any advice at all. Thanks! Paige
