Every garden should have a tree. Even if you just have a small garden there is always a tree to suit. They attract beneficial wildlife, create dappled shade and can shelter other plants from wind and sun. Betila (Silver Birch) Moonbeam has wonderful white bark, perfect for small gardens – ideal for native birds or Evergreen Arbutus- unedo (Strawberry tree) Gorgeous small tree with delightful red stems and cinnamon brown bark.
Fruit trees also (naturally) produce delightful fruits to harvest too! Apples, Pears and Plums are all easy to grow and with most of our fruit on semi-dwarf or very-dwarf rootstocks they are suited for the smaller garden.
What about Pollination?
This is the most popular query when buying a fruit tree. We can advise on this depending on the trees you select and the area you live – but it’s much simpler than most customers realise.
Growing your own fruit is easy and rewarding. Strawberries, Currants, Tayberry, Gooseberries and Blueberries are all soft fruits and are best home grown so you pick and eat at the best moment. When the fruit is fully ripe and warmed in the mid afternoon sun, they will taste the sweetest and juiciest.
