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. 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.
Legendary support and expert advice
The fruit trees that we supply come with an important extra: our legendary support and expert advice. Our aim is to ensure that your fruit trees thrive and provide you with fruit as soon as possible, and for years to come. Our advice begins with ensuring that your choice of trees from our extensive selection will work well, whether they are for a patio pot, garden or orchard. Following your purchase, our after-sales service provides assistance and tips on planting, getting the trees to grow well and crop as soon as possible, and personalized advice on what to do if unexpected difficulties arise. Every fruit tree pack is accompanied by written summary instructions and recommendations, and we are always on hand for extra help.. Follow this link to read some customer comments on our service.
In other words, even though our trees are competitively priced, we are not just a mail-order tree supplier. By buying our fruit trees, you are also buying our experience. All those who have purchased our trees are well aware that help is just a phone call – or an email message – away. It is this personal service, free of charge with your order, that sets us apart from the rest. We hope that you enjoy our website, and we look forward to hearing from you.

The 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.
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!

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.
