These Anti-Mole Bulbs make moles and field mice disappear without using pesticides or poison. They secrete a smell that humans cannot detect – a smell that keeps moles and field mice away or forces them to move.

This patio version of 'Flavorcot' has been developed by fruit authority Will Sibley, who has for many years been working on a range of fruit trees for the home gardener. It has been grafted onto a dwarfing selection of seedling peach ‘Montclair’ using special grafting techniques to keep the tree even more compact. 'Flavorcot' represents a massive advancement in apricot breeding as it performs exceptionally well in our UK climate and can produce in excess of 750 fruits on a four year old free standing tree. The fruits are very large and juicy with a red blush and succulent, sweet orange flesh. Superb aromatic flavour. Can be kept restricted to a height of 1.2m (4ft).
Supplied as a one year old tree in a 4 litre pot. The tree is grafted at about 30cm (1ft) above soil level and has 2-3 shoots about 20cm (8in) long that will quickly develop into a bushy head.
Season: mid July.
Plant size: 4 litre pot.
Please note: Sibley's Patio Apricot 'Flavorcot' is excluded from the 'Buy any 2 Pot Grown Fruit Trees SAVE £5' offer.
Prunus 'Flavor Candy'
NEW! This unusual fruit is a complex cross between a plum and an apricot. The large peach-sized fruits are smooth skinned and very juicy (like a plum) and have a unique flavour, much like a blend of fruit juices. They are deliciously flavoured, yielding fruit of incomparable sweetness. This variety produces heavy crops of red flushed fruits with yellow flesh and combines the juiciness of a plum with the fragrant taste of an apricot. Pluots flower early and therefore require similar growing conditions to apricots - a warm, sheltered site in full sun. They can be trained as a fan or grown as free standing trees.
Season: early September.

Prunus persica 'Emporer's Delight'

Strawberry 'Vibrant' (early)
A fantastic new early variety to start the season!

Vibrant produces medium to large bright red berries that are very sweet and flavoursome to taste. The plants are heavy cropping and resistant to powdery mildew and crown rot. Double cropping in the main crop year can occur if July temperatures are relatively low with surprisingly good fruit being produced in September.
