situation

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. All Apricots are self fertile but may require hand pollinating.

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.

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. Once you have put together your order the delivery charge will show before payment. All orders are despatched in one delivery.

Lovely shaped tree. Arrived well packed. It looks great in its new situation on our South-facing wall. Am looking forward to the fruit.

We bought a flavourcot from blackmore in may 2013. We hand pollinate the flowers each spring and have had some very good crops, this last summer we had a tremendous crop of 60+ fruits and the flavour was better than anything in shops. No issue with any pests and the tree has tolerated being pruned by a couple amateurs very well.

First season after planting the tree produced some fruits of extraordinary colour and flavor.

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 Flavourcot I have just received is one fine specimen. Thankyou so much everyone at Blackmoors. I love my tree!

I ordered several fruit trees which I received in Jersey yesterday lunchtime - just two days door-to-door. All well-packed and in excellent condition. Blackmoor certainly provides a service second to none.

Ordered the apricot for a gift. It arrived in good time, really well packaged and out of the box came a beautifully sized and shaped tree, bursting with life and new growth. Very happy, as was the gift recipient. So happy, I have ordered more plants since. Definitely recommended, both the apricot and Blackmoor.

Thank you Blackmoor Nurseries for delivering a very healthy Apricot tree. We look forward to it settling in its new home.

What a great website you have. I can see that a great deal of thought has gone into it. Great images and descriptions and found every piece of information that I needed to make my selection. Oh and what a perfect tree you delivered too. Thanks Bob
