growing the many Fruits we can choose for fruit-cage and orchard
The majority of soft fruits love moist rich soil, preferably well mulched with leaf mould, and many are acid lovers actually disliking lime in the soil. Though some such as the currants thrive on almost any soils and can be grown almost anywhere others are more specific. Unless you really have moist acid soil conditions then you will need to grow the true Ericaceous fruits in containers. However if you do have lime free soil, and preferably a stream or pond, then these are the crops for you.
