Now is a good time to plant fruit trees!
See Facebook for fruit tree seasonal care tips.
All trees from 2015 will be 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 Countryfile, BBC1, 4th September 2016. John Craven visits Potash Farm in Kent, a hazel/cob nut farm. Nut trees make a good addition to the garden/orchard. Look at hazel nuts in fruit varieties tab. Monty Don on Gardeners World 7th October 2016 was explaining when to pick pears and showing his delight in their taste. A ripe pear like Beurre Hardy is a beautiful fruit to eat.
