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.
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.

I bought this tree as a bare root maiden in Autumn 2013. The maiden was a good size and to my surprise produced 6 big apples in its first season. Excellent quality!

There is a number of reasons why I keep coming back to Blackmoor's; excellent quality stock, impeccable customer service and speedy dispatch. I honestly can not fault this superb retail business. I've now bought 14 cookers this year of which 7 have been trained into cordons. Well done.

Excellent specimen of tree delivered as arranged, first time I have used Blackmoor and would highly recommend. I was very impressed by the quality of the tree

I've used this site before to purchase a plum tree, and I was VERY happy with the quality. The only problem I had before was that even though I selcted the 'collection' option, I got an email confirming the 'delivery'. The same has just happened again!

So pleased to have found Howgate Wonder and then even more pleased to find you delivered to the Isle Of Wight. The tree you supplied is fantastic. I am so pleased, thank you very much
