I have a mini orchard only 8-9. Some were planted in pots to keep them small. We have 1000mm per year rain fall. Reasonable good loam (10cm) and clay subsoil. I aspect is north and west.
My biggest challenge is space.
I recommend reading Introduction to Permaculture by Bill Mollison and Guide to Self Sufficiency by Jackie French. Excellent books.
This permaculture site had excellent info sheets. http://permaculturenorth.org.au/index.php?q=node/28
