Fruit tree suppliers
« on: September 14, 2020, 11:18:08 am »

Does anyone have any recommendations for suppliers of bare root fruit trees? I spent a large part of the "summer" clearing one of our fields so we can start growing some fruit tress. I'd like to have a proper orchard, I've got the space but the budget will dictate how far we can go. Id like to grow a variety of apples (edible and cider), pears (edible and cider), plumbs, cherries and a few others that we are yet to decide on.

If there's anything in the South Wales are I'd like to support local, but as long as they can deliver I don't mind going further a field. If the budget allows it we have space for 50-100 trees but I'm happy to start on the lower side and expand.

I've had good trees and advice from Adam's apples / talaton plants. I believe they're near Exeter. They offer sets of trees based on cropping season, tree type, purpose of orchard etc. Stakes, guards etc. They also discount if you buy larger quantities of trees. I'd use them again.

My mixed orchard has been in for nearly 4 years now and is mostly cropping well.

Thanks Sandspider

They are currently on my list so it's good to have positive feedback on them.

WE've also used Adam's Apples and would recommend them.

Ditto Adam's Apples, if only because there's a chance they'll answer the phone "Adam's Apples, Adam speaking"  ;D .
