    Our winds are walking around the village - just hold on, because we are standing on a mountain. So I’ve been planting my land for four years around the perimeter with trees and shrubs to protect me from wind turbulence and from prying eyes. Immediately this was not a financial opportunity. And to have a beautiful and dense hedge, so that it also brings all sorts of fruits, oh, how you want.
    But how much time and effort it takes! And so plant-plant, but the end and edge is not visible. And recently I talked with a friend, and she told me about the so-called bouquet landing.
    In my opinion, this is the best solution - not one tree grows on one patch, but three or five at once! But here, as it turned out, there are several important points:
    • if you plant garden trees in this way, their fruits will be smaller than those of “free” relatives (this doesn’t bother me personally - I still take a good crop, I take it not by weight but by quantity);
    • plant an odd number of trees (preferably not less than three and preferably one age and species) and plant the seedlings in different directions when planting;
    • In addition to spruce, you can "braid" all types of trees: deciduous, coniferous, and fruit;
    • You can seat all the seedlings in one well, or you can
    - in separate holes, but located close to each other (I do just that).
    In general, nothing complicated, but the results are simply amazing!
    By the way, on my personal experience I was convinced that if you plant a birch in a bouquet on some damp place or next to a "wet" cellar, it will perfectly pump out its roots with moisture as a powerful pump.
    “Bouquets” of multi-colored fruit-bearing trees look beautiful and spectacular - for example, mountain ash red and black, maple green and red.
    Well I got accustomed to chestnuts, grown by me from seeds, and also a family of plums and cherries (at the same time and from their trees the garden was released). Even in the spring I planted a black and red currant in the "bouquet": all the bushes feel great. Now, on the north side, the plot is practically fenced off and, I hope, protected. It's great!
