Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

Bare Root
These trees are supplied as “bare roots” meaning that the roots of the trees are established below the ground but not actively growing (dormant) between November and March. As bare roots are stored without any soil or pot, they will easily settle themselves when in contact with soil in your garden. Don't worry if your tree is not showing any sign of growth above the ground come April, as it's still in the dormant phase and will soon explode into life.

130-150cm
Your trees will arrive as bare root plants at a height of 130-150cm.

Eventual height:

4m

Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Generally pest and disease free.MORE

Water in well

Water in thoroughly when planting. For bare root trees, you won't need to water regularly, only in dry spells when needed. You should be able to tell because the leaves will start to wilt and droop. If a container grown tree, it will need more watering until its roots are established. It should be watered every other day or so for the first few months. Then reduce to twice a week until autumn. In the second year it should have an established enough root system to support itself, just water when required as explained above for bare roots. When watering a tree it is important to give a good soaking. It is better to water heavily and less frequently than little and often as this encourages the roots to grow down into the ground.MORE

Full sun

Plant where the trees will receive around 6-8 hours of sunlight daily in spring/summer.MORE

Happy in most soils

Prefers fertile well draining soil, can also tolerate clay soil but you will need to take some steps to improve drainage in the winter.MORE

Feeding not required

No feeding needed.MORE

Prune annually

Some pruning should be done each winter to ensure that your fruit tree maintains a productive shape. This can improve yields and prevent disease.MORE
