So my husband and I decided to try planting 2 fruit trees in our backyard. We decided to pick a cherry tree (Lambert) and pear tree (Anjou) from our local Home Depot garden centre. They have yet to be planted (they were bought last night). I decided to do a google search for "lambert cherry tree" to see any tips for caring for it since this is a new venture for us. I then saw an article about pollination: something I hadn't even thought of (and of course the worker at Home Depot didn't mention anything about, though I didn't think to ask). I've been trying to find out information about this now before we plant them so that we can trade them if needed (we might have room for a third tree, but it would be pushing it and definitely no more than that). It looks like the pear tree will be fine, but it would give more fruit if it could cross-pollinate. But I keep reading mixed things about the cherry tree, sometimes that it will be like the pear tree, but then others that say it needs a partner. Help!! Oh because its the end of the season there isn't as much selection. I remember seeing Vans, and a few others, though I can't remember off the top of my head.
