Availability:
Trees are available in the WINTER months between November and March each year. All orders are subject to availability and weather conditions. If items are ‘out of stock' please
contact us for an alternative. We try to keep stock numbers up to date but if we are out of stock after you have ordered we will contact you to arrange an alternative or a swift refund.

IMPORTANT:
The maximum standard length to post is 1.5m. Where trees exceed this, which they often do, the tip will be pruned to an appropriate point around 1.3m. This will produce when planted out a traditional half standard tree with 3 or 4 branches (which you can single to a straight leader if you wish). If you do not want this please contact us for other delivery options/collection. We have taken great care in choosing varieties that are suitable for Wales. We constantly monitor over 50 varieties in our own dedicated stoolbeds at both 600 and 1,000ft in Wales. New varieties will be added to our stocks over time ...more

and 1,000ft in Wales. More varieties will be added to our stocks over time. It is no coincidence that a lot of our varieties are old and were well proven before the
C20 and the use of chemicals.
