Make fruitful use of even the tiniest space
Trees that can be grown in compact areas mean gardeners can enjoy the health benefits and great taste of mango, rose apple and calamondin among others without requiring an area of orchard-sized proportions
Last week, ''Green Fingers'' discussed some fruit trees that will fit a small yard. Mango trees are usually big, but you can plant one if you want. Just make sure that the sapling has been propagated by marcotting, which means it has been rooted from a mature plant. It will therefore be easier to fashion into a small tree than a sapling which has been grown from seed.

AND FRUIT TO BOOT: Left, a very decorative plant, calamondin is also a very good source of vitamin C.
