What are truffles?
Truffles are a kind of 'underground mushroom' that grow on the roots of certain tree species. They are highly prized by top chefs and connoisseurs for their exquisite flavor.
Truffles are one of the most expensive fungi on the face of the planet. Wholesale prices for the black winter truffle (Tuber melanosporum) can exceed £1000 per kg
All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only despatch when all plants are ready.
The best land for truffle growing should be free from established trees and have a high ph value (7.3-8.3). However, even soils with quite low ph levels can be utilised as long as adequate lime is applied, we have worked with fields with a starting ph as low as 4.9.
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.

My 2014 Summer truffle is now well established, bushy, healthy and already showing signs of activity under soil level. Look forward to some truffles in the coming years. Considering buying another one.

I ordered this as a gift for my brother in Karachi, Pakistan. Being a hot climate city with smaller autumn season, the usual black truffle would not have been suitable choice. This one came expertly packed, quickly delivered to make in time for my flight and the healthy plant is doing v well in Karachi now :) Lets see in 3-4 years whether he gets any truffles.

Was impressed by the size of this tree. Much larger than others seen on the web.
