Pear trees, like apple trees, are easy to grow and suffer with very few problems. We offer a range of delicious varieties that are grafted onto Quince ‘A’ semi-dwarfing rootstock to promote fruit production from an early age. This will produce a tree of medium vigour that is easy to pick and control. Bush pear trees will grow 2.4-3.6m (8-12ft) in height and spread. Choose a sunny, sheltered site. To ensure rapid establishment, pear trees are supplied bare-rooted and will be 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch (including the roots). Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

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).
