Can be planted in all soil types from November-March. Hardy to -20°C.

Ideal for beds and borders. Grows well in sun or shade. DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR – The trees are supplied as healthy, dormant, bare root plants, delivered in specially designed protective packaging to ensure they arrive in perfect condition. Trees will be between 4-6' high, some with side branches developing, but please note that size can vary considerably due to the characteristics of different varieties. All come complete with comprehensive growing instructions. ROOTSTOCKS – Most fruit trees are grafted onto a closely related species 'rootstock' to predetermine the size and vigour of the tree and give the best possible yields. We have carefully chosen semi-dwarfing rootstocks (all of which are certified virus-free) to ensure that our trees grow, crop well and remain of manageable size in your garden. POLLINATION – Many of our apple, pear and plum fruit tree varieties will also pollinate themselves satisfactorily, however, the best fruit set is achieved by choosing at least two varieties from a species (unless your neighbours have trees that will act as pollinators!)
