A guide to choosing the right size

All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only dispatch when all plants are ready.

This type of cordon is often referred to as Minarettes, upright columns or super columns. Plant at 2-3 feet apart.

Bare Root = Field grown trees that have been freshly lifted and supplied with no soil around the roots. Only available during the dormant period November-April
2 Year Cordon = A two year old tree that has been pruned back in the first winter to form a Cordon shape. Generally trees will be 150cm in height with multiple side branches that have been pruned back.

Duo Cordon = A single stem cordon tree with one variety grafted on top of the other. The bottom half of the tree will be one variety and the top the other.

situation

Most suburban situations provide good pollen due to the close proximity of other gardens. It is not always necessary to have pollinators if the bees and other pollinating insects are generous with their visits. If you have no other Apple tree close by then select two varieties in the same group or the adjoining group ie group 2 and 4 will pollinate group 3 as will any others in group 3. Some varieties are self fertile.

delivery charges

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.

Cordon Fruit Trees

Apples and pears have traditionally been grown as inclined cordons for hundreds of years. The latest idea is to grow vertical cordons to save space in the garden. These trees are also known as Minarette fruit trees. We supply the highest quality Cordon fruit trees and plants and pack them with great care.
