Can fruit trees be grown in containers?

Yes - All fruit trees can be grown in pots as long as they are large enough. As far as the type of container is to be considered for planting, clay pots are heavy and stable. Plastic is durable, light and easier to manage, but they have a very short life, till they start cracking. For most fruit trees, it is best to choose pots that are 50-60cm in diameter. Pots are ideal for dwarfing rootstocks, but any semi dwarfing rootstocks will need potting up to a larger container or planting out into the ground.

Do you grow Espalier or Fan trained fruit trees?

No. It is hard to recommend varieties as this is down to personal taste and custom requirement. Our best seller and entire product line is available on the website. Also the local weather conditions have an impact on overall planting methods to be employed.

What is the difference between bare-root and potted trees?

Yes and No - Each has its own advantages:

pot grown tree can be planted at any time of the year. They start fruiting the next summer after planting.

Bare Root tree is grown in a field and can only be lifted and sent out during the winter months when dormant. They should not be allowed to fruit the first summer after planting.

What is a Stock or rootstock?

A rootstock is the portion of the tree that grows in the ground. Attached to it is the scion. It is the rootstock that determines the ultimate height that the tree will grow into, and also its suitability to soil conditions. The scion is the actual known variety being grown. This is an identical copy of its original mother tree.
