The beginning of a garden always has surprises. I have had my garden for 20 years and learnt a lot, but it starts with a seed that germinates. Often other unwanted plants germinate as well, but some can be interesting.

Nursery trees are grafted from adult growth, so start producing sooner, and branch much lower.
