  • Grow your own fruit

    Autumn is the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness according to Keats and can bring a wealth of pleasures in the garden.

    If you like eating fruit why not plant a fruit tree? All tree planting can bring benefits to the garden - colour, shape, shade and ornament. Fruit trees can provide food for you and wildlife too.

    Apples are a popular choice with beautiful spring blossom which encourages pollinating insects and autumn fruit to eat or cook with - windfalls offer a bonus for wildlife too. There are many self-pollinating apple trees if you only have space for one tree, and many more options which require pollinating partners for two or more trees. Choose from a range of red to green coloured apples, sharp or sweet, for cooking or eating  including many that are not commonly available in the shops.  Try Apple James Grieve for a dual purpose eater and cooker, or the appropriately named self-fertile 'Scrumptious' eating apple for a reliable tree.

    Pears, plums and cherries are other familiar fruit trees to consider and there are more unusual edible options such as Mulbery, Medlar and Nut (Filbert or Kent Cob), Figs and Walnuts.

    Thinking of planting fruit trees? Come and talk to us about your requirements this autumn and in subsequent years you could be harvesting your own fruit.

    Fruit trees on dwarf rootstock and trained fruit such as Fan or Espalier Fruit trees are also available.

     

  • 20% off small trees until 28 February

    Do you love trees? We do!

    That's why we are offering 20% off our small container trees and fruit trees during February.

    We say 'small' to distinguish them from our semi-mature standard trees but they are 175-200cm established 3-4 year old trees in a container. Our fruit trees are approximately 150cm tall and pruned to encourage low branches for easy harvesting. These trees can  be collected from the nursery as they fit into most cars.

    February is an ideal planting time. So have a good look on our website, come and visit or telephone for advice - there is a tree for every tree lover with 20% off during February (subject to availability at time of order).
