Fruit Trees Selection Boxes
These are strong 2 year old bare root fruit trees that we normally sell here on the site during the winter planting season. Each spring we pot up a good number of them for our local customers at our open weekends and they always go down a storm. This selection box is a collection of 10 trees delivered to you on a pallet.
These young trees are potted into 15 litre pots (so 50% bigger than a 2 gallon/10 litre bucket to give a sense of scale) they are mostly between 120 and 200 cm high depending on the variety. The Pears tend to be the shortest, the Plums the largest….but they are all the same age so height is no reflection of maturity. These trees were potted up in early spring so the roots may not have not quite filled the pot so do be gentle de-potting them for planting
All these fruit trees are on semi dwarfing root stocks so they wont get enormous, 3-5 metres in height ultimately they are perfect for you own small productive orchard! We would recommend they are planted 4-8 metres apart depending on the space you have. When planted together as an orchard extra pollinating trees will not be needed.
Our pallet of 10 trees is chosen from Apple Cox, Bramley, Discoverey. Cherry stella. Damson Merryweather, Greengage, Medlar, Black Mulberry, Pear Concorde, Conference. Plum Czar, Victoria and Quince Vranja.
We will do our very best to choose 10 varieties that are all different but we may need to ‘double up’ on some varieties if demand is high later on.
