Planting fruit trees when they are dormant, freshly lifted from the fields each autumn and winter, is the traditional and best time to transplant larger fruit trees that lose their leaves each year (deciduous). And commercial fruit growers do the same when they are establishing newly planted orchards to supply us with fruit in supermarkets.
Bare root fruit trees, as they are known, are a cost-effective and easy way to supply fruit trees to gardeners too. Supplied straight from our cold stores to you at home, you can be assured of top quality fruit trees that will burst into leaf and blossom as the soil and weather warm up in spring.
Working only with growers who supply commercial orchards, our trees are guaranteed to deliver results for you. And they are on dwarfing rootstocks, so they will not take over your space - reaching 6-7ft (2M) in 10 years or so, are easy to manage and pick fruit from.
Simply water in your bare root fruit trees well after planting, especially in warm spring weather, and the new roots and shoots will appear, and you may even get a few fruits this year. Bumper crops will be produced for years afterwards, making fruit trees an investment that keeps on giving - fruit at just a penny or two a pound for decades.
