Bare Root Fruit Trees

Bare Root Fruit trees are great value, enabling you to grow a better variety of fruits including Pear, Apple, Cherry and more unusual varieties like Quince. They are simply dug out of the soil during their dormant period (November-March) ready to be replanted in your garden. Click for more help and advice on choosing, planting and caring for your Bare Root Fruit Trees.

Choose your Bare Root Fruit Trees

If you only have room for one tree, you will need a self fertile variety such as Red Windsor Apple, Peregrine Peach or Morello Cherry. If you have more space, you can grow two varieties of the same fruit as pollination partners - for example Gala and Golden Delicious apples, or Williams and Conference pears. If you’re planting Bare Root Fruit trees in pots, choose a patio or ‘dwarf’ variety such as Victoria Plum, Lord NapierNectarine or Egremont RussetApple.

Planting Bare Root Fruit Trees

Plant Bare Root Fruit trees as soon as possible unless the ground is frozen or waterlogged - if it is, store the tree in a cold place for a few days. If the roots are dry, soak them in water. Choose a position in full sun with space for the branches to grow. Dig a hole deep and wide enough for all the roots, and add lots of compost to the soil, packing it down firmly. Stake the tree for support and water in well.

Bare Root Fruit Trees Care Tips

Feed your Bare Root Fruit trees every March and give them a mulch of compost or manure. Keep the ground around the tree clear of weeds and grass. Each type of tree has different pruning needs, which we cover in our Full Care Guide, along with tips on growing and caring for your Bare Root Trees.
