Now is a good time to plant fruit trees!
See Facebook for fruit tree seasonal care tips.
All trees since 2015 have been potted up with peat free media, saving the declining peat bog habitats.
Many trees are grown and propagated on site, in the heart of East Sussex, whilst some of the more unusual trees are sourced from a single top UK growing nursery.
Many of my trees for sale are grown on dwarfing rootstocks (which keeps them small), therefore they are suitable for any small garden or allotment. With some simple care every garden should have a fruit tree, not just for the fruit, but for the blossom, wildlife and aesthetics. See Glorious Gardens from Above, BBC2, 27th May 2018. Christine Walkden flies over Sussex, visiting Arundel Castle and West Dean Gardens. She talks to the head gardeners and discusses pruning and the benefits of trained trees in small gardens.
