I have bees for 2 years now in our back yard, and I have been thinking of planting an almond tree. This would bring the tree to the bees. Do you know if bees can pollinate a single almond tree, or do I need more than one? Thanks a lot,
The easy answer is two trees of a different variety that are compatible for cross pollination but you can also get self-fertile varieties like the all-in-one that don't need another tree. Some peaches and almonds will cross-pollinate as well since most are grown on the same root-stocks and they are closely related.
I see--so really I need to different variety trees, unless I get the "combo" tree. I'll ask around in local nurseries too to make sure they grow in Atlanta. It's a long shot, but why not try? Thanks a lot,
