Fruit

Healthy and supremely tasty, fresh-picked fruit from the garden is one of the real luxuries of growing your own. A British climate is perfect for growing so many different types from tart Rhubarb in early spring to sweet summer Strawberries and crunchy autumn Apples.

We stock a huge range of fruit: look out for container-grown bushes and trees to buy all year round.

Fruit trees to enjoy in your garden include traditional Apples, Pears and Plums – we stock many traditional heritage varieties with outstanding flavour and fascinating histories. Look out for unusual fruits, too, like Mulberries, Quinces and Medlars.

Berries and Currants are superb value, producing years of plentiful harvests from just a few plants. Gooseberries are first, fruiting from May, while Currants (black, white and red) take over in summer.

Please ask the staff in our garden centre for more information and advice about growing fruit.
