Winter and Spring Bulbs / Fruit Trees

Posted on:
Oct 24, 13


It is a perfect time to plant fruit trees. The ground is still warm and lovely and moist!

All our fruit trees are on semi-dwarf rootstock and self-fertile so the trees don’t get massive (approx 19ft) and just one tree will bear fruit.

Look in the ‘Grow Your Own’ section for latest availability.

We have a small selection of Winter and Spring Bulbs at the nursery for planting out now.

  •  Allium christophii
  • Allium Purple Sensation
  • Anemone blanda
  • Chionodoxa forbesii Pink Giant
  • Crocus species mixed
  • Fritillaria meleagris / Snake’s head fritillary
  • Galanthus nivalis / Snowdrops
  • Ipheon uniflorum Wisley Blue
  • Iris reticulate Harmony
  • Miniature Daffodil Pipit
  • Miniature Daffodil Tete-a-Tete
  • Puschkinia libanotica
  • Scilla siberica

A selection of Tulips will be available in November. 

Tulip bulbs should be planted out when the soil is cold to help prevent tulip fire, a Botrytis-type fungus. They can be planted any time between November and January.
