This orchard starter pack is the ideal way to start your own home or community orchard.
The basic 5-tree pack includes 5 bare-root fruit trees, comprising 3 different varieties of apple trees and 2 further trees which will be a mix of pear trees / plum trees / cherry trees.
The extended 10-tree pack includes 10 bare-root trees, each of different varieties, and will consist of apple trees, pear trees, a plum tree, a gage or damson or cherry plum, and a cherry tree.
The trees are selected by us from varieties that are reliable and easy to grow. The trees are usually 1-year olds, which is the best age for successful orchard establishment. They are all either self-fertile or able to cross-pollinate each other, so you will have no pollination worries.
The rootstocks will usually be 'semi-vigorous', which means the trees should reach a mature height of roughly 3m - 4.5m / 10ft - 15ft after 5-10 years. Semi-vigorous rootstocks produce medium-large trees which are nevertheless not so big that they become difficult to pick and look after.
As with all our trees, you also get email advice from our fruit tree experts.
