A guide to choosing the right size

Note: We are selling the trees and not the bottles of cider.

All varieties are grown on the MM106 rootstock giving a approximate height of 4-5 metres when mature.
Cider apple trees are categorised on their juice making qualities and range from sweet to bittersweet and sharp to bittersharp. 

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.

Any Bare Root fruit trees - Availability means available for supply from Nov to April.

2 Year Bush = A two year old tree that has been pruned back in the first winter to form a bush shape. Generally trees will be 150-175cm in height with multiple side branches. 

Pollination Made Simple 

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.

A delivery charge of £8.50 is for all single tree orders. £10.00 if more than one tree. £15.00 charge for larger orders except in the case of the Espalier and Fan trained trees where this charge is a maximum of £40.00.
