Dan NeuteboomOur company, Suffolk Fruit and Trees, specializes in the growing and supply of quality fruit trees, tailor-made to your requirements. 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. During the summer months, we have a selection of potted trees available. 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.

Did you know?

Quince trees offer exceptional beauty for their abundant white and pink blossom, and they are a very hardy type of tree. For most of the time, they are perfectly capable of looking after themselves, year after year and season after season. Read more here.

Growing cherries and enjoying the fruit are now much easier thanks to dwarfing rootstocks, which make netting the trees very feasible. We have a good selection of varieties available to cover the cherry season. Read more here.

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:

Type A
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.

Type B
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.

Type C
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. £25 each, or as a Two-Tree Pack, £48 plus P&P.

P&P costs
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.

Ordering

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. We will contact you to confirm your order or to suggest alternatives in the case that the varieties that you have chosen are no longer in stock. We will then provide the details necessary so that you can pay for the trees. 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!

An apricot on a south-facing wallWould you like to give someone a tree, or some trees, without the bother of having to choose and deliver them? Easy!

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. Just click here to find out more.
