More Information

Family fruit trees are ideal for small gardens where there is only room for a single tree. They consist of two (duo trees) or three compatible varieties grafted onto one tree, allowing you to grow several different varieties in a relatively small amount of space. The varieties are carefully selected to cross-pollinate with one another so that they all get a good fruit set. Family trees are grafted onto semi-dwarfing rootstocks. They are supplied as bare-rooted, two year old trees and are approximately 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) tall on despatch. Trees are available from late November to early May.


Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order.  All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
