Apple 'Braeburn' is the UK's most popular eating apple variety by far and is easy to grow - flourishing superbly when grown in your garden or in a large pot on your patio.
Having what is considered by many to be the perfect sweet/tangy flavour balance, Braeburn apples are just slightly tart with subtle hints of pear and cinnamon They're one of the best apples for cooking too, in that they hold their shape and do not release a great deal of liquid making them ideal for tarts.
Ideal for novice gardeners, Braeburn is a self-fertile apple tree that does not need another variety to act as a pollinator, so will easily produce good crops of bi-colored apples every year. Covered with a red to orange blush and highlighted with red stripes these apples are good to look at as well as being tasty.
Apples will be ready to pick fresh from your tree by mid-October each season and will store well until the end of January if kept chilled but frost free.

Plum ‘Stanley’ is fully hardy, remains compact and is perfect for patio pots and gardens of any size.
Easy to grow and self-fertile, so no pollinator is required, plum Stanley crops reliably every summer, with the minimum of fuss. Yields even more heavily when pollinated with another, nearby variety of plum, gage or damson.
Flowering fairly late, the showy white blossoms are rarely affected by frost, performing well even after a cold, wet spring – ideal for the UK climate, and marvelous for attracting pollinating insects.
Stanley has deep violet fruits cover orange-yellow flesh that is satisfyingly firm, very sweet and juicy - delicious eaten straight from the tree, and great cooked for desserts and pastries. As an added bonus, it’s a freestone plum, meaning that the stone separates easily from the flesh.
A good early-season pear variety, ‘Williams’ produces a regular crop of large, yellow, aromatic fruits with a typical 'pear flavour'. This British-bred pear is perfect for poaching and preserving, as well as eating fresh from the tree from mid to late September.
Perfect for attracting pollinators into the garden, 'Williams' is self-fertile, plus as it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other pear trees - meaning an even bigger crop. Growing to around 4m after 5 years, ‘Williams’ is a good all-rounder and worthy of space in any garden.
