Our 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. Our trees are grown in England, and they are traditional English varieties. 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. Our phone number is 01379 870759, please leave a message if we are unable to answer and we'll call back.
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 onwards
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.

Five-Tree Orchard Pack
Our standard Five-Tree 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 £98 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, email email@example.com
The trees supplied in our Five-Tree Orchard Pack are untrained trees. If you require four or fewer untrained trees, our prices are as follows:
Single untrained tree £25
Two untrained trees £24 each
Three untrained trees £23 each
Four untrained trees £22 each
Two-Tree Orchard Pack
Our Two-Tree Orchard Pack is designed specifically for gardens in which there is insufficient space for the five trees in our Standard Orchard Pack. With two trees, it is possible to select varieties that are compatible as regards pollination, ensuring the best possible cropping results. You also benefit from the consultancy that we provide as part of our service, ensuring that your selection is suitable for your location, your site and your soil. The price of the Two-Tree Orchard Pack, comprising two trees, 2-3 years old, is just £48 plus £16 for packaging and delivery. Click here for the order form and further details.
Pre-Trained Orchard Pack (2 trees) for Cordon, Espalier and Fan-Shaped Trees
This is a very exciting Orchard Pack. It is available either as pre-trained trees, or trees that with just a minimal input on your part, can be adapted exactly to your requirements. This includes fan shape or espalier formation, or growing as cordons. When ordering, please quote which type of pack you require:
Two fruit trees, not modified, but suitable to be shaped as a fan or espalier. Ideal for experienced gardeners. These trees cost £36 each, or as a Two-Tree Pack, total £70 plus P&P.
Two fruit trees, pre-trained with a bamboo frame in place ready for planting as a fan or espalier. These trees cost £41 each, or as a Two-Tree Pack, £78 plus P&P.
Two fruit trees, two to three years old (very different to the 1-year old cordon trees normally sold on the internet), particularly suitable for growing as Cordons. £30 each, or as a Two-Tree Pack, £58 plus P&P.
For up to four trees, the cost of P&P is £16. This additional cost reflects the greater weight of trees, which are well past the 1-year-old stage and are closer to maturity.
Tree Starter Kit
The Tree Starter Kit provides you with a starter stake in treated wood, 4 feet in length, a spiral tree guard, and a tree tie. The stake is not suitable as a permanent stake: it is sturdy enough to support the tree in the first few years of its life. The price of each Tree Starter Kit is £6.50 each. If you are ordering trees, you can add up to 3 Tree Starter Kits with your order without any extra post & packaging costs. If more than 3 starter kits are needed, we have to send these as a separate pack. The post & packaging for such a pack will be £16. Click here for the order form and further information on Tree Starter Kits. Or contact us by email or phone (01379 870759).
If you wish to buy more than 5 trees, or a combination of several Orchard Packs, we can provide special discounts for large orders, with the percentage discount increasing as the quantity increases. Just contact us by email or phone (01379 870759) 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.
Would you like to give someone a tree, or some trees, without the bother of having to choose and deliver them? Easy! With our Suffolk Fruit & Trees Gift Voucher system, you just have to tell us how much you would like to spend, and we will inform you how many trees that represents, inclusive of delivery to your friend's or relation's home, wherever in the UK. After receiving your payment, we will send the voucher to the address required. The trees will be delivered in the December-April period, because that is the very best time to transplant trees, when they are in complete dormancy. The trees will be accompanied by information on everything necessary for ensuring a healthy and productive life in the garden.
For further details, please contact us by email.
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. We can provide a rabbit guard as part of our Tree Starter Kit. 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.
