Frequently Asked Questions

Are you open to personal callers?

Retail customers can collect an order by prior arrangement only, please telephone or e-mail your requirements. Payment is made on collection.

 

Can you send your stocks abroad and how much does it cost?

We can currently only supply within the UK, no deliveries can be made to Republic and Northern Ireland not the Channel Islands.

 

Are your stocks supplied in pots?

We supply bare root stock for the majority of varieties Autumn to Spring, during the summer we normally hold good stocks of container grown trees.

 

When is the best time to plant?

Autumn and Winter is a great time to plant. You can plant outside of the traditional planting season as pot grown.

 

Is there a guarantee?

Yes, all stock is guaranteed to arrive in good condition. It is guaranteed to grow during the first growing season and it is guaranteed true to name thereafter.

 

How big are the trees you sell?

The trees are usually 18 months-2 years old depending on variety and rootstock, although with such a large range variations can occur.

 

Can you offer mature/older trees?

No because the perceived advantages of planting older stock is outweighed by the disadvantages. We send out younger stock because it establishes more quickly and easily. Older trees receive more of a shock after transplanting and tend to ‘sit’ for a while doing nothing, by which time the younger tree has raced ahead.

 

How can I check stock availability?

Let us have your requirements based on our web listings by telephone or e-mail and we will confirm availability. We are normally able to supply within 10-14 days dependent on order volumes.

 

How soon will my fruit trees crop after I have received them?

It does depend on the type of tree you order and local conditions as well. Dwarfing trees are more precocious & despite being smaller on receipt will usually be quicker to come into bearing; sometimes you might get the odd fruit the season following planting, normally it is one to two years. More vigorous trees take a little longer to fruit, 2-3 years is a good average. Remember this is a guided estimate only, we can’t guarantee how soon your trees will fruit.
