I was wondering if anyone out there had any tips for planting pear trees and good cross pollinators for zone 5b? I am hoping to plant one in my front yard and one in my back, but hoping not to have the same variety if possible.
I wanted to find a better version of this cross-pollination compatibility chart re: pears for you, Stacey, but hmmm…this one from Colo State is not very high res, but it gives the basics. I know I have a better one here somewhere in my heaps of stuff. : )
