No - Sorry we are not a Garden Centre or retail Nursery. Orders can be placed via our website and the collection option can be selected at the checkout. Your order will then be ready for you to collect during our normal opening hours which are Monday-Friday 07.30-16.00. Our plants are grown in fields that are 3 miles away from our office. So it is not possible to just turn up and select your own trees.
It depends on what space you have, as the ultimate height of a rootstock is the width of one arm of the stepover. Taking M26 which grows to 3m, a single armed stepover will be 3m wide, whereas a double armed stepover (T shape) will be 6m.
This is not the only criteria, as some varieties on M26 are vigorous and will get to 3m per arm. Other varieties are not so and may only get to 2m per arm.
Also all dwarf / semi dwarfing rootstocks will need support, or they will keel over in time. This is why many use M116 or MM106 as they are self supporting. But they all need wiring to enable formation of the arms, as they will always try to grow vertically.
Hi - We have some Warw... D
But Japanese plums are more difficult, some varieties are already in flower. Some varieties that we have already shipped out, have broken bud in transit. Royal Mail shipping period can be 20 days for 1st class, which is not good.
But if you are to take the risk then yes.
Please contact if interested with quantity and address, then I will send Paypal invoice.
The USA comprises of about 10 different climatic zones, from Florida to Alaska. The prevailing climate is colder in zone 2 than in zone 10. Plants are very seldom capable of being the same vigour in all zones, when grown on the same rootstock. Therefore, different rootstocks are used as with different varieties that are grafted onto them.
Our trees are normal sized for healthy trees grown naturally outside without chemical fertilizers. When you buy a potted tree from a nursery, it could well be 5 years old and root bound (Roots tightly packed and circling the pot). Ours are normally 1-year old maidens. Potted root bound trees do not like to be transplanted into a new home. Wherever you plant our trees, they will adapt themselves to their new environment quickly.
As we are not a mass production unit, we only have limited runs of varieties. Due to the demand from our customers, these are sold quickly and there will be times when stock is not available.
Yes – All our sales go through our online shop.
Yes – In certain circumstances, where stock levels permit. We do offer a discount, this is shown on the product page, and will be reflected in your order. But our prices are competitive, given all the work we do to produce our trees. Buying a fruit tree is an investment. A fruit tree will pay back your investment in future years.
There are many good online guides for grafting basics. Anyone can start grafting with only a knife, some scion wood and rootstock, and a little knowledge.
Yes - But you certainly will not be able to grow any Granny Smith, Gala's or even MacIntosh apples. But there are lots of hardy variety's that have been selectively breed for Northern Climates, to survive the harsh winter climates.
In fact, you can also grow a lot of different species of fruit, be it pears, cherries, plums.
