Fruit Trees

Fruit Trees

We sell most of our fruit trees over the winter between December and March, as bare-root trees.
This means that we dig them out of the ground, with no pot or soil, for you to take away and plant straight away. Purchasing and planting fruit trees in this way, over containerised trees has many benefits, including the following:


- Cost and Choice: Bare-root trees are cheaper to buy than potted trees and there are more varieties to choose from, because they take up less space in the nursery, so we can provide a larger range.
- Ease of planting and aftercare: Because bare-root trees have no pot or soil, they are easier to carry, maneuver and plant. Also, in winter there is less chance of drought and certainly lower tempreatures, allowing the tree to establish new roots, at a less stressful time of the year, when the soil is damper and the air cooler. In winter, careful watering isn't required, whereas when planting trees in the spring/summer, careful monitoring of watering is essential.

The Fruit Trees below are the varieties we stock throughout the year, however between December and March they are available as bare-root trees.
They are available as potted trees all year round.
