|I recently purchased 1 each of the above mentioned trees. Are either of them self polinating? If not, how can I get them to grow fruit/nuts?

|Both apples and almonds need a second tree for pollination and good fruit set. There are some new almond cultivars that are considered self-pollinating but they still benefit from having a second almond tree in the vicinity. Unless your neighbors have apple and almond trees which are compatible with yours, I'd suggest planting two different cultivars of apple and almond trees in your landscape.
