Deciduous Fruit Trees
Deciduous Fruit Trees are simply fruit trees that lose their leaves in winter. We have a massive range to choose from. Our ever-increasing dwarf range is suitable for those people wanting to plant in pots or people with smaller backyards.
These deciduous trees are best planted in winter when they have no leaves. The trees have been grown in the ground and dug up and potted into pots ready for sale. Our entire range is available from June each year, but be quick as once they are sold we don’t get new stock until the following winter.
AVAILABLE NOW - Our deciduous fruit trees have now arrived in the nursery. We have a large range including super dwarf, dwarf, semi-dwarf and regular trees.
APPLES (Malus domestica)
Apples require a cold climate in order to produce fruit. Some varieties require more 'chill hours' (hours below 7 degrees each year) than others. Apples also need cross pollination. Apple blossoms have both male and female parts in the one flower but they can't pollinate themselves and so need the pollen from another variety of apple for the blossom to be fertilised and develop into fruit. SUPER DWARF APPLES
- Super Dwarf apple trees will grow to around 1.8m high and 1.5m wide. They produce the same size fruit as their semi-dwarf and regular sized counterparts. They can be grown in the ground or in containers.
