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.

History and description of Sweet Society

Sweet Society is a new variety bred by Hugh Ermen and first introduced in 2004. It is part of a range of plants and trees selected by the Royal Horticultural Society to celebrate the Bicentennial. The fruit is similar to a good coloured Cox's Orange Pippin with attractive russet streaks and a good red flush on a yellow green background. The flavour is sweet and rich and highly aromatic. It produces a free spurring, compact bushy tree. Cropping is heavy and thinning of fruit is recommended to avoid small fruit
