Stepover Apple & Pear Trees

Stepovers are ideal for planting at the front of ornamental borders and vegetable plots to form a low edging that is both attractive and productive. Cultivated since Victorian times, they are basically one tier espaliers that are low enough to simply ‘step over’ where necessary. Stepovers are supplied in a ‘Y’ shape with two main shoots that can be trained out in opposite directions at about 45-60cm (18-24in) above the ground. On receipt you will need to tie the arms down gradually (in several stages) to a horizontal supporting framework (not supplied). Allow 2.4-3.5m (8-12ft) total spread per tree. Trees are available from late November to late April.


We are now taking orders for delivery in the Autumn.


Don't forget to include a Gripple Wire Tensioning Kit on your order, the easy way to support stepover fruit trees.  For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
