We have now stopped taking orders for the winter 2016/17 planting season. Our 2017/18 list is currently being prepared. It will be available from 1st May when we will start taking orders for delivery next autumn/winter.
Please select the rootstock, age and tree form available items in the table below. The choice of rootstock is important as it determines the size to which the tree will grow when mature. Trees are available either as maidens which are untrained one year old trees or two year old trees already trained in a particular form. Reduced price trees when available are smaller one year old trees or two year old trees which have less well developed heads than our regular trees but are otherwise perfectly good healthy trees offered at a lower price. Trees are supplied bare root during the planting season from late November to early March. Further information is available below.
