I've never planted fruit trees before, and don't know a lot about their requirements. I've heard that some trees require another in order to pollinate. We bought a peach, pear and apple tree from Home Depot a few weeks back. I asked the guy there if I needed two of the same type of tree for any of these, and he said he thought all you needed was just any other type of fruit tree, but not necessarily the same type of fruit. I wasn't so sure he knew exactly what he was talking about, and he admitted he only had some training in gardening, but I went ahead and bought the three different types of fruit.
Will this work, or do I need another of the same fruit for any of these trees? I now have a BOGO offer from Home Depot, so I can pick up another one or two if I need it!
