We do not just buy in stock – the quality of our fruit trees is raised from the roots up and cultivated with expert knowledge and skill developed over many years. This expertise is handed down to you our customers. Planting fruit trees is an investment that will repay tenfold over many, many years. Buying quality from the start is essential to avoid the lingering disaster that can arise through purchasing poorer quality stock.
Each year we bud and graft new – and old – varieties of apple, pear, plum, cherry, gage and damson, not to mention nut trees and connoisseurs favourites like quinces, mulberries asian pear, quince trees and medlars. It seems to us that interest in these oddball or fringe varieties of fruit tree is increasing as each year we seem to sell more of them.
