All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only despatch when all plants are ready.
3 Litre = Container grown and can be planted all year round. The size refers to the number of litres of compost that the container holds.
5cm Rootball - Available for immediate despatch. Plants are between 20-25cm in height. They are like small plug plants that will get established very quickly.
Bare Root = Field grown plants that have been freshly lifted and supplied with no soil around the roots. Only available during the dormant period November-April
Plant 6–10 feet apart (1.8–3 m). These plants should also not be set too deeply and after planting bare root canes should be cut back to 9” (23 cm).
The young shoots arising from the base of the plant are tied in as they grow and then the old 9” stub can be removed.
Subsequently pruning is similar to raspberries, canes that have fruited are cut out immediately after fruiting.
If Tayberry plants are in waterlogged soils for more than a few days at a time, they normally die a slow death from lack of aeration (oxygen) or from subsequent attack by root diseases.
Plants do best in a well-drained, fertile, loam soil with moderate water holding capacity. Avoid heavy clay soils. Sometimes you can improve a less desirable site by tilling, increasing organic matter content and building raised beds.
For most fruits choose a warm sheltered position avoiding wet or shaded spots, although soft fruit will tolerate some shade. Avoid north walls except when planting blackberries which will crop successfully, albeit, a little later in the season. Crops are likely to be sparse in frosty situations. If birds are troublesome a fruit cage can be erected.
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.
