situation

For most fruits choose a warm sheltered position avoiding wet or shaded spots, although soft fruit will tolerate some shade. Avoid north walls except when planting blackberries which will crop successfully, albeit, a little later in the season. Crops are likely to be sparse in frosty situations. If birds are troublesome a fruit cage can be erected.

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.

Vranja (AGM)

Quince Fruit Trees | Award of Garden Merit | Genus Cydonia | Cydonia oblonga

Quince Vranja - Even if you have no use for the fruit it is well worth growing this quince tree. The gnarled and contorted trunk and branches give the tree a oriental look. Ornamental pink flowers followed by large, pear-shaped fruit. Self fertile.

I come back to Blackmoors time and time again because the fruit stock is second to none; the customer service is excellent; the packaging is sturdy; despatch is swift ie a few days rather than weeks. Again, this Vranja I have just received is one fine specimen. Thankyou so much everyone at Blackmoors. I love my tree!

We bought this tree a year ago and it produced a single perfect quince in its' first year. It now has in April 2014 the most fabulous white pink tinged blossom and we hope for a bigger crop this year.

A very healthy looking 'Vranja' Quince arrived beautifully wrapped and ready to go. Thank you Blackmore, I will be back and will certainly recommend others to use your website.

I asked for a delay in order delivery and it came when requested, beautifully packaged and in great condition. I have always had very reliable service from Blackmoor and also the fact that they don't charge more to deliver to my area means that I will keep coming back to them.

This is the first time I have purchased trees from you and I am delighted with the advice and service I have received. Nothing was too much trouble and you were very patient in dealing with my many questions. I collected my trees, a Quince and a cherry, yesterday and they will be delivered to my family today. I know they will be as pleased as I am with the size and quality of the trees. I will have no hesitation in purchasing from you in the future and I have already recommended you to several friends.

This is my third order - the first two orders were larger order and I found the site very clear and easy to use with plenty of information on each variety which allowed me to make informed choices on varieties suitable for growing this far north. Will be back again (and again !)
