Sale of fruit trees
We currently have a limited availability of fruit trees for sale, caused by this year’s drought conditions. Availability is for pre-trained trees only – fan, cordon, espalier. Due to high demand, many of the more unusual varieties are not currently available. We deliver throughout the UK. Our trees are nearly always two to three-year old trees, so they usually start cropping the year after planting. Please note that the best time to plant fruit trees is from December to April.
Orders for trees must be paid for in advance, and we need your full address to complete your booking correctly. Click here for the fruit tree order form and further details.
We are always available to discuss your requirements. The best way to contact us is by email.
We hope that you enjoy our website, and we look forward to hearing from you. Contact us at Suffolk Fruit and Trees: email@example.com.
Hints and tips
Firstly, any newly-planted tree should have a rabbit guard to protect the trunk from damage caused by hares and rabbits, but also by cats and dogs. The type of guard depends on the wildlife you have in your area.
Secondly, the very best way to ensure that the trees get a really good start is – in the growing season, in other words from April to mid-September – to give each tree one or two full watering cans each week..
Our third suggestion regards wild flower meadows and their function in improving fruit tree cropping. We planted our own wild flower meadow several years ago, and we have seen how marvellous it is in providing a home for pollinating insects, above all in years of extreme climatic conditions.
