The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
–Chinese Proverb
We need to have patience in life, look to the future but enjoy the now, Decide if you are happy to wait for a tree or bush from seed or if you are willing to buy one (how quickly do you want fruit from it? – Do you have enough fruit from other trees and bushes and this one is just an addition?)
Do you own your land or are you a renter? Are you planning on moving soon? You can grow many tree varieties in containers for a few years until you up and move out, this prevents the need to dig out and risk killing them. If you speak to people who work in your local parks, council or municipality – they will tell you how trees that are already 10 meters high are delivered in containers or root balls about a half meter in height and diameter!
