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
10 Litre = Container grown and can be planted all year round. The size refers to the number of litres of compost that the container holds.
1 Year Maiden = A one year old tree and the size depends on the variety but in general they will be 125cm in height and will have some side branches.
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.

2 Year Cordon 10 Litre = The term cordon simply refers to a single stem with short sideshoots (the fruiting spurs). This is usually trained angled to 45 degrees (oblique cordon), but can be trained singly vertically (also known as minarette)

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.

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. £15.00 charge for larger orders except in the case of the Espalier Fans and Step Over trained trees where this charge is a maximum of £40.00. Once you have put together your order the delivery charge will show before payment. All orders are despatched in one delivery.

First time that I've ordered from this company. I'm impressed. The information on the web site is informative. Communication via emails was very good. They told me about the preparation of the order, possibility of delays due to weather, when the order was being processed & when being delivered. This re-assured me that I was dealing with a professional reputable company. The trees arrived undamaged together with instructions. All in all a pleasant experience.

My trees and tree ties arrived yesterday. My husband and I were very impressed with the quality of the products. I have no experience to grow apple trees and pear trees. I had been doing research for almost two month with a lot comparison before I placed an order from Blackmoor. I am so glad I have made a good choice. Blackmoor not only provide high quality products but also deliver the best possible customer service. I have learnt a lot from the staff member. They are so patient and really helpful giving me a lot of information and advice. Well done, Blackmoor! You have won another loyal customer from today. I will recommend this firm to everybody (Actually it was recommended to me by another nursery from Scotland as well, who doesn’t sell top fruit trees). My trees have already been planted in my back garden now. Thank you so much, Blackmoor! I will come back soon.

Personally picked up the rootstock together with a conference pear rootstock. Impressed with the shape and sturdiness of the plants and should be planting them out within 48 hours. Also impressed with the simplicity of ordering and amount of valuable information available. I certainly will be ordering again.
