Fruit trees, soft fruit bushes & hedging (bare root)
Due to our coldstore facility we are able to offer bare root fruit stocks for planting until early May. The coldstore keeps the plants in their dormant state until they are despatched so they are in prime condition for planting.
Bare root fruit trees, soft fruit bushes and hedging will be despatched from late November until mid May. Orders placed before mid November will usually be despatched by mid December. Orders placed after mid November will usually be delivered within 28 days of the order being placed. Orders placed from mid April onwards will be despatched within 14 days.
Fruit trees & soft fruit bushes (pot grown)
Pot grown fruit trees are available May to September and will be despatched within 28 days.
Cell grown raspberries are available from late May to mid July and will be despatched within 28 days.
Blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, honeyberries, lingonberries, figs, goji berries and pot grown grapes, gooseberries and currants will be despatched within 28 days unless ordered with plants that are due to be despatched at a later date. Under these circumstances, to avoid additional carriage charges, the entire order will be sent together when everything is available.

Orders placed during these periods will usually be delivered within 28 days. Some varieties are only available as coldstored plants (see product description for availability).
