Deciduous Fruit Trees

Deciduous Fruit Trees are simply fruit trees that lose their leaves in winter. Each year we get a large range to choose from including super dwarf, dwarf, semi-dwarf and regular trees. Our ever-increasing dwarf range is suitable for those people wanting to plant in pots or people with smaller backyards. Our entire range is available from June, but we sell out each year and once the stock is sold, new stock is not available until the following June.

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.

We have almost sold out of our deciduous fruit trees for this year. We have a small number of pears, pomegranates and mulberries remaining in stock.

APPLES (Malus domestica)

Apples require a cool climate in order to produce fruit. Consider where apples are grown commercially, places such as Bilpin and Batlow, and this will give you an idea of the best growing conditions. Some varieties require more 'chill hours' (hours below 7 degrees each year) than others. Apples require full sun and a well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter. Apples also need cross pollination with specific cross-pollination partners. 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 in order to be fertilised and develop into fruit. Apples can be bought as Super Dwarf, Dwarf, Semi Dwarf and Full Size. All apple trees are grafted but dwarf trees are grafted onto root stock that keeps them more compact. When fully grown, these range from 1.5m for Super Dwarf to 4m in height for Full Size apple trees. They all produce the same size fruit. Dwarf and Super Dwarf can be grown in containers. We have SOLD OUT of apple trees. New stock won't be in until June 2022.Cross Pollination Partners Pink Lady - Gala, Granny Smith, Jonathan, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Red Fuji
