    Cuttings, seeds and friends. Probably worth looking at low spend as well as n spend...cheap fruit trees from lidl/aldi/pound land.

    Also, might be worth seeing if there is a local gardening club. we have one I keep meaning to join. I understand lots of people have got plants through neighbours in the gardening club. e.g. I have LOADS of lilac suckers and seedlings. I'd be willing to give a neighbour a few for nothing, or perhaps a favour....

    Not quite free but Focus are closing down and selling off at silly prices.

    Check your council website. Last year a friend of mine moved and the council were running a "free tree" scheme. She got 25 trees for free :beer: I've checked the website this year and (at the moment) it says the scheme is closed for 2010, but I'm keeping an eye on it - think last years scheme went up around the beginning of July anyway.

    You order early; pick up the bare rooted trees in November/December. Oh, and you can purchase more for ludicrously cheap prices!!

    So, basically, depends if your council runs a similar scheme; if they have the budget to continue this scheme and if they decide to run it this year.

    25 free trees must be worth the search though :)
