Cortland Apple Trees for sale - order online

We supply trees and plants only during the winter planting season from late November to mid March. Orders placed now will not be be delivered until the winter planting season. You will not be required to pay until October but by ordering now you can ensure that the items are reserved for you and supplied as early as possible when we resume delveries in late November.
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.
