Collection - If you would like to collect your trees then use this option. Note the collection is from the Wholesale Nursery office between Monday-Friday only. Please allow 1 working days for your order to be processed prior to collection date.
We are not a Garden Centre or retail Nursery. Orders can be placed via our website and the collection option can be selected at the checkout. Your order will then be ready for you to collect during our normal opening hours which are Monday-Friday 07.30-16.30. Our plants are grown in fields that can be 2 miles away from our office so it is not possible to just turn up and select your own trees.
Delivery Charges - The delivery charge is worked out from the weight and the size of the plant. We have several rates that apply to UK mainland addresses. A delivery charge of £8.50 is for all single tree orders. £10.00 if more than one tree except in the case of the Espalier and Fan trained trees where this charge is a maximum of £40.00. The lower postal rates range from £2.80 - £5.70, will be applied to smaller orders of the lighter plants like currants, raspberries, gooseberries, blackberries, asparagus and strawberries although larger orders will go into the £10.00 rate. Once you have put together your order the delivery charge will show before payment. All orders are despatched in one delivery.

Gage Fruit Trees
Gages and plums are very closely related, so it is the differing flavours that differentiate between them - Gages are smaller, rounded and sweeter than dessert plums. Gages do not like a lot of attention – training of 2 or 3 year old trees should be carried out in March and pruning of an established tree should be kept to a minimum and carried out in June to late July. Remove dead, broken and diseased branches and cut back overcrowded branches. Paint the cuts with Arbrex to minimise the risk of silver leaf infection. Some Gage Plants are self fertile.
