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 around 100cm in height and mainly just whips.
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. 

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 Pear tree close by then select two varieties in the same group or the adjoining group ie group B and D will pollinate group C as will any others in group C. Some varieties are self fertile. 

situation

Pears need a location with good circulation where the ground is slightly elevated and sloping. This is because the trees bloom early and the flowers may be damaged in the spring by frosty air, which settles in low-lying areas. Pears should be grown in heavier soil types such as clayey loam with porous subsoil, or medium or sandy loam.

Pear trees will not survive on ground that is saturated with water.

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 except in the case of the Espalier Fans and Step Over trained trees where this charge is a maximum of £40.00.

Very pleased with my bare rooted pear tree on Quince C rootstock. I planted it earlier in the year. A strong, healthy well shaped plant.

Bought as part of a collection, very good value. Tree established well and is healthy but no fruit as yet (2nd Summer), fingers crossed for next year.

Excellent tree. Good shape and well rooted.

21 Jun 16 | Quality bare-root U cordon tree

It is the first time I bought a bare root tree, and I'm very impressed with it. Due to space we went for the U cordon, tree arrived in late March, it's already full of leaves now in late June. Although it didn't flower this year, it has grown a lot, all side branches growing healthy and dark green. Really looking forward to some nice flowers and hopefully will see some fruits next season. Another thing - it would be very helpful if we can share photos here, so we can see how each other's trees are doing in different parts of the country/world. Would it be in the plan later?

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