Choose a warm sheltered position and avoid badly drained soil and low-lying areas where spring frosts are likely to damage the blossom. Morello cherries and cooking plums are the only trees that will thrive on north facing walls.

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. 

To take advantage of a promotional code or gift voucher this must be entered into the redeem code box at the checkout. Discounts cannot be given once an order is completed and any codes have not been used.

Mirabelle de Nancy

Mirabelle de Nancy | Genus Prunus | Prunus insititia

Mirabelle - These interesting fruits are small and sweet and often crop in abundance. Yellow orange with green tinges and red spots. Mirabelles are primarily used in the kitchen although they can be eaten fresh too. The stone separates cleanly from the flesh, which makes it easier when preparing the fruit for cooking. Self-fertile and good frost resistance. Approximate tree height on St Julien A rootstock is 3-4 metres and mature height of trees on VVA1 rootstock is 2.5 metres.

I bought a U cordon Mirabelle last year, together with various other dwarf fruit trees. The Mirabelle died in front of my eyes over the first couple of months and never came alive again during 2016. Everything I bought in 2015 and 2016 did well, so this has been a mystery and a disappointment to me.

What a cracker. Looking forward to eating these lush fruits.

Purchased in March 2009 as a one year maiden, this tree has developed into a well balanced goblet shape. A glorious coat of blossom in the spring develops through the season into a generous crop of small sweet fruits. Delivered in perfect condition as one would expect of Blackmoor, the mirabelle is an asset to any size of garden.

Would just like to say thank you for a perfect tree delivered to me earlier this week. I enjoyed looking through your website and found the ordering process very straight forward. Kept up to date by email right up to the day of the delivery. Delivery arrived perfectly packaged. I will be back again later in the Spring.
