No cheap supermarket fruit trees?
« on: February 17, 2021, 08:52:33 pm »
Is there no cheap supermarket fruit trees this year at all?
I have see some in co-op.
Usually there's plenty in Asda, Aldi and all other ones.
I was specifically waiting for them, wanted to plant some plums and damsons  :thinking:

Doh! I will have to buy some much more expensive trees online - even online most trees are sold out!

Saw some earlier this year but maybe you're right - a bit scarcer supply this year and/or bought-up more rapidly.

My cousin bought some for me last week from Tesco - ?6 each or two for ?10.  Victoria plums, selection of apples, cherry

She and her partner came on Sunday morning and planted them for me - I'm not up to digging holes nowadays, so very grateful
