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 Distance: 6m

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 trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

Q:Does Height Really Matter?

A: Not As Much As You Might Think...
One stand out specification that customers often use to judge the value of a tree is the height.So should height directly correlate with the price of a tree? No, not necessarily.
To an extent the height of a tree can give you a good indication of its maturity but you must not forget: To grow a productive, well shaped, healthy tree you must prune it back regularly, especially when young.
Our trees often grow up to 2m in the fields before we prune them back and package them ready to send out. This pruning encourages the tree to grow more, stronger branches and ensures there is a good balance between the root size and top growth. This ensures that your tree puts energy into establishing a healthy root base instead of supporting top growth, providing a better foundation for your tree in the future.
So, in summary: Don’t let the extra 10/20cm you may find elsewhere sway you. You are likely to be paying extra for the delivery costs and, if you want a healthy tree in the long run, you’re going to have to chop it off anyway!

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

"At the end of March, during some snowy and very rainy weather I puchased a crab apple tree. it was in good condition, well packed and delivered and it has looked good since.Pleased I ordered a 2nd tree an ornamental cherry "The Bride". I was very disappointed. It had no root ball and fell apart when turned out. It had lost a lot of young side shoots on the main stem! A bit of growth at the very top of the main stem and then a big gap about 12" before a small broken sideshoot. It looked in very poor condition. Had I been at hand when my husband (not an experienced gardener) tried to tip it out and plant it I would have taken photos and complained! An expensive lesson learned! Do it yourself, or be on hand, and examine the plants very carefully at each step of unwrapping and planting!"
