Dan NeuteboomOur company, Suffolk Fruit and Trees, specializes in the growing and supply of quality fruit trees, tailor-made to your requirements in the form of an Orchard Pack, containing 5 fruit trees, generally 2- to 3-year-old. The company’s mission is to pass on as much relevant information as possible, so that the customers who purchase our trees can be really successful with them, wherever they are planted in the UK.

We supply from an extensive list of varieties, and we can provide trees at the age and maturity that you prefer. 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. Order now to book the varieties you want! During the summer months from April to the end of November, you can place an order for trees that will be delivered in the planting season from December to March. In any case, orders must be paid for in advance, and we need your full address to complete your booking correctly. We recommend booking well ahead, because we stock a wide choice of varieties, and some varieties run out very quickly.

We are always available to discuss your order, requirements and any queries you may have. As we are often out in the fields, please send an email (rather than phoning) and include your own landline phone number in your email message so that we can recontact you if necessary.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: we are currently experiencing problems with our landline phone. If you find our number engaged, please call us on our mobile, 07596 704 575. Thank you!

Our trees are suitable even when there are height restrictions, such as along a fence between properties, or on an allotment. Click here to read more.

Order now for delivery from December

People who work in garden centres know that plants sell best when they have flowers on. In the same way, customers often start thinking about planting fruit trees in spring, when days are warmer and the sap is rising. In the winter, people like to be warm and cosy. Fruit trees are different: they like to be handled when it is cold and all the leaves have come off.

Trees evolved their life cycle to survive harsh winter conditions. In winter, there is far less light for photosynthesis, and the low temperatures can easily freeze and kill the leaves. So in the winter months, the tree shuts down, shedding its leaves and virtually halting its uptake of water from the soil, because sap movement has come to a standstill. That’s why the winter months December, January, February and March are the best time to plant fruit trees.

So, if you’re thinking about planting a few trees, this is a good time to place an advance order, so that you can be the first to receive your trees in December. It’s also important to avoid planting trees in grass and weeds. Young fruit trees must be given a chance to build up their root systems unhindered by grass encroachment. Always make sure that a square yard of soil around the trunk of the trees is completely free from grass or weeds.

Standard Orchard Pack


Our Standard Orchard pack contains five untrained trees, 2 apple trees, 1 pear, 1 plum, and 1 greengage or cherry tree, selected to ensure efficient pollination. (If you would prefer different types of trees in your Orchard Pack, you can simply specify your requirements. There is no extra cost for Orchard Pack personalization). These two- to three-year-old quality trees will usually begin cropping the year after planting. Price just £95 plus delivery.

You may find that our packing and postage charges are greater than other suppliers, but there is a reason for this. The fruit trees we sell are not 'mail order matchsticks,' but are well-developed specimens with useful side branches. Our trees usually start cropping the year after planting. We prefer to sell sturdy, strong and healthy trees, and this necessitates higher postal charges.

We deliver trees to all addresses in the UK. Please remember that the sooner you order, the sooner you will receive your trees. The main delivery period is from December to April, when trees are dormant and so in the best possible condition for transplanting with a high success rate. During the summer months from April to the end of November, you can place an order for an Orchard Pack that will be delivered in the planting season from December to March. In any case, orders must be paid for in advance. 

Fruit trees are site-sensitive. You choose, we advise. We make sure that the trees you select will be successful in your location. Each Pack includes a planting guide for best results. For information and enquiries, phone 01379 870759, mobile 07596 704 575, email

Quality trees

apples_pete_3_smThe fruit trees we sell are not 'mail order matchsticks.' Most of our trees are well-developed specimens that usually (depending on variety) have useful side branches to encourage early cropping. This is why, with our trees, cropping usually begins the year after planting. The fact that our trees are sturdy, strong and healthy means that there are good levels of reserves in the tree structure. This helps them to resist diseases caused by the fungal spores that are always present in the air.

The trees supplied in our Orchard Pack are untrained trees. If you require four or fewer trees, our prices are as follows:

Single untrained tree £22
Two untrained trees £21 each
Three untrained  trees £20 each
Four untrained  trees £19 each

We can also supply trained trees, tied to a bamboo frame and ready for planting for espalier or fan configurations. The prices of our trained trees are as follows:

Fan-shaped trees £34 each
Espalier trees £34 each

Our price for cordon trees is £22 each.

New! Two-Tree Training Pack for Cordon, Espalier and Fan-Shaped Trees

In this new Orchard Pack, we supply trees that are suitable for training as cordons, espaliers and fan-shaped trees, ideal for planting along a wall or a fence. While we can also supply ready-trained trees, we are sure that some gardeners would like to train their trees themselves. The techniques are not difficult and are described in full on our website. Our Two-Tree Training Pack for Cordon, Espalier and Fan-shaped Trees costs £48 plus delivery. In other words, £24 per tree, which represents a saving of £10 per tree, as our pre-trained trees cost £34 each.

Large orders

As the trees that we supply are generally 2-3-year-old trees, they have a thicker trunk and more side branches than equivalent products by our competitors. It also means that costs of postage and package may also be higher.
To avoid penalizing customers wishing to buy 12 tree or more in a single order, we provide special discounts for large orders, with the percentage discount increasing as the quantity increases. Just contact us by e-mail or phone (01379 870759, mobile 07596 704 575) for further info on quantity discounts.


We would like to underline that fruit trees do best when they are planted in the period when they are fully dormant. This is in the period December to April. Once you have decided which fruit trees you would like to plant (you can choose from our fruit tree varieties page), you can make a selection and place a provisional order using the web form on that page. Our top-selling formula is the Orchard Pack consisting of 5 trees of your choice, subject to availability, at £95. To this, the cost of package and postage will have to be added. This will be made known to you once we know your full address and postcode. We will then provide the details necessary so that you can pay for the trees. We require advance payment even for trees ordered in the summer months, from April on, for delivery in the planting season from December to March. We are always available to provide you with free advice on which tree combinations work best. We take pride in our service of offering orchard packs tailor-made to requirements. After all, everyone has a different garden, and their own favourite fruits!

For more information on fruit tree sales, please e-mail us your requirements and we can help you with your choice of trees, if you so wish. Or phone 01379 870759, mobile 07596 704 575.

Hints and tips

We would like to provide three tips that are so important that we prefer to mention them right here on our home page. 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. Just click here to find out more.
