What other people say about Suffolk Fruit and Trees
I am still working flat out on my garden most days, removing tons of horrendous clay, laying paths, making a pergola, preparing more decent sized holes in which to plant trees etc., however, I feel compelled to write to you to say how pleased I am with the trees bought from you, the guidance given by you, and the care you took to ensure I knew what I was doing. I cannot believe there are many suppliers who take the trouble on a Sunday afternoon to sit their customer down for 45 minutes in his own lounge with his pad and pen in order to be provided with a set of key necessities, that you know will enable him to give your splendid trees the best chance of success possible. I typed up your notes instantly I was so impressed. When I then add them to all the superb information on the website – the best on fruit trees on the internet in my estimation – you provide a wonderful service.
As for the future I am pretty confident that I shall be returning to you to tap your personal deep reservoir of specialist knowledge. Details such as when and how to apply a winter wash, how to avoid peach leaf curl and the like have been most useful but I don’t think I shall cope on all fronts with what nature throws at me and your 8 trees. I shall be in contact at some point I’m sure!
The idea of supplying me with trainable trees at a cost less than for espaliers was very generous as a most welcome money saver. The speed with which my order was met was also impressive and they all arrived in good condition and are now located around the borders of my moderately sized garden, in good quality soil, manure and fish blood and bone. We had to take out a vast amount of football sized lumps of clay, to much greater depth and width than originally anticipated, but the trees now are well planted and I look forward to spring and to seeing them come to life.
I should also mention that your suggestions for trees similar to my original order, but more likely to succeed because of factors such as disease resistance and prowess as pollinators, has I don’t doubt given me a set of trees that will coexist effectively as well as helping each other along, to provide excellent fruit eventually .
The whole experience of buying from you has been a positive pleasure.
I would just like to thank you so much for the 3 apple trees you supplied. They are excellent plants and are now safely planted in our garden. Many thanks for your great service.”
Just to let you know we received our tree yesterday. We would like to thank you for your help and wonderful guidance and instructions you sent us, both in choosing and caring for our apple tree. We look forward to watching it grow and thrive!!”
“Thank you for the order which arrived promtly. They are good looking trees indeed – well brought on and healthy.”
Many thanks for the excellent and very helpful advice you gave us. No one had spotted that our apple tree was not in fact a size-restricted tree but a full sized tree, which explained why it was no longer fruiting well. I followed your suggestions for cutting it down and treating the stump, and we are looking forward to planting smaller trees in the future!”
Your parcel arrived as planned on Friday. Good weather allowed planting on Saturday. I am delighted with the quality of the trees, so different to the twiglike fruit tree I received from a newspaper offer previously. Thank you for your efficiency and advice.”
Now that all fifteen fruit trees have arrived and are safely planted (they look great planted in the grid pattern you suggested) I am writing to say how much I appreciated all the help you gave me. From the very first time I contacted you it was obvious that you were not just looking to sell me trees but genuinely wanted to look after me and my wife so that we had exactly the orchard we wanted. The personal interest you took was exceptional and included you calling me twice to discuss in detail our requirements. I had no idea that so much was involved but am confident that we have the best trees that will suit our location and soil and varieties that we will enjoy the produce from, some I had never heard of! You have given us good old fashioned service that is so rare these days. We were so lucky to find you simply by searching the net – I had tried a couple of other suppliers first and was beginning to despair! I will have no hesitation in recommending you to friends as I cannot think anyone could provide a better service.
Thank you so much,
“Having been brought up in a city, I had only dreamed of having a fruit garden, but when my wife and I moved to the country, I launched myself with gusto into my dream! After all, books and catalogues all said how easy it was – just plant up and everything in the garden was, er, lovely. After many trials and tribulations, sadder and wiser, I met Dan, who for several years now has supplied all my fruit bushes and trees and given me a huge amount of good (and sometimes!) stern advice. The result? You should see it – fantastic! Everything is booming! So I have gone from new to boom, through Neuteboom. Thanks, Dan!”

“I have traditionally used Scotts for fruit trees but when I found they had gone out of business I turned to the internet and found Dan Neuteboom at realenglishfruit.co.uk. He helped me with my choice of trees, packed them efficiently for collection and then later sent a well packaged tree by post. The trees were all in excellent condition and his planting advice clear, full and very helpful. On the several occasions I have mailed for advice he has provided comprehensive guidance.
I would recommend him to anyone, small gardener or professional, as a source of good trees and excellent advice.”
Andy Forgan, France
“Dan of Suffolk Fruit and Trees has provided an exceptional service which goes way beyond the high quality trees he has supplied us. Throughout he has been providing us with advice and suggestions to ensure we have both beautiful and fruitful orchards. This advice and technical back up, provided freely, has given us confidence in our decisions today so that we can enjoy the trees for the next few decades. I have no hesitation in endorsing Dan.”
