Answer: Hi Tara,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Pyrus calleryana ’Capital’is a vertical form of an ornamental pear, which reaches 1-3m in width once mature. I would suggest plant 1m away from the fence to ensure even growth.

I suggest improving soil before planting by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
