Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 12m

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting fruiting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

This is an example of our polypot - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season.
 
Customer Reviews

Average Rating: 3.5/5 (2 reviews)

Rating: 5/5

"The tree was well packed, and within a couple of days has noticeable new buds. It's been fully planted now in the garden and is growing nicely."

Reviewed Thursday, 30 April 2015

Rating: 2/5

"They look healthy enough but I was surprised that they had been pruned severely back, taking off the leaders which will certainly spoil the shape of the adult trees. I would have done better buying much cheaper and smaller bare-root plants which would certainly grow away just as quickly as the mutilated plants I received."

Reviewed Tuesday, 7 April 2015

Primrose says: "Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear you are dissatisfied with the growth received on your tree, but are glad to see customer services was able to help."
