We are a small nursery growing and selling traditional and rare varieties of fruit trees. We have been working closely with the Gloucestershire Orchard Trust and are currently propagating old rare apple, pear and plum varieties originating from the Gloucestershire area, some of which have never been commercially available before. We are excited about this and are looking forward to seeing these old varieties back in orchards and gardens across the county and beyond, in the coming years. All trees that we grow are field grown and so are sold bare rooted, the bare root season runs from late November to the end of March.
DUE TO INCREASED DEMAND LAST YEAR WE HAVE A REDUCED NUMBER OF FRUIT TREES GROWING ON FOR THIS COMING SEASON. WE ARE TRYING TO SOURCE EXTRA TREES FROM FELLOW GROWERS, BUT THIS IS PROVING DIFFICULT AND EXPENSIVE. THIS IS MAINLY DUE TO BREXIT AND THE PANDEMIC. AVAILABILITY AND PRICES ARE YET TO BE CONFIRMED.
Please feel free to phone or email anytime during the year as early ordering is advisable. We regret we cannot offer a delivery service so all trees need to be collected from the nursery. Trees ordered pre-season must be collected by the end of January, all other orders should be collected within one month. Collection by appointment only.
CHRISTMAS TREE NUMBERS ARE ALSO DOWN THIS YEAR, PARTICULARLY LARGER SPECIMENS. WE WILL NOT BE BUYING IN TREES. SO ONCE THEY ARE GONE THEY ARE GONE. WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR CHRISTMAS TREES. WE WILL CUT THE FIRST ONES FOR WEEKEND 27TH/28TH NOVEMBER.
You can find us here. Just South/West of the cross roads in Rockhampton.
