Hi all,

Rural King has all their stuff half price which includes some fruit 
trees: apples and pears. I have a pretty shaded yard with some 
understory oaks and redbuds in my neighbors yard on the fence line. 
Also I have some 8- 10 ft rose of sharons in the yard. THe total light 
would be about 5-6 hours full sun (that may be generous) and partial 
sun at other times. For about $30 I can get two dwarf apples and a 
dwarf pear. Since dwarf sized trees can grow on the lot should I go 
ahead and give this a try? Should I start with one tree?

Any thoughts would be great. I really need to get going with some
