Home grown apricots are succulent and juicy and have a rich aromatic flavour that you do not experience from shop purchased fruits. Thanks to modern breeding there are now reliable varieties available, making them a very worthwhile crop to grow. They require similar growing conditions to peaches - a warm sheltered site in full sun. Our apricots are grown on Montclair rootstock to create a compact tree that is proven to give a heavier crop of larger fruit. With the exception of Sibley's Patio Apricot and 'Aprigold', trees are 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch. Pot grown trees are available from April to late August.
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).
