An economical and fun way to grow a variety of fruit plants is to buy plant collections. Often these collections include several different varieties. Choose from collections with strawberry plants, blueberry bushes and more. Most fruit plants grow best in full sun (six or more hours of direct sunlight daily). Before buying plant collections for your home garden, make sure they are suitable for your hardiness zone. Other factors to consider are the mature height and spread of the plants. If space is limited, you can always share part of the collection with a gardening friend. Other considerations when buying collections are harvest time and soil requirements.
