Purchased a couple of large fruit trees in pots from Costco on Friday. Was particularly impressed by the quality of the trees all looked healthy with new buds showing, were well watered and good size most being around 6-7 foot tall. Only problem I had was getting it in my car but I just about manged with the front window wound down :)
I was after a couple of pear trees to add to my garden and choose Williams & Comice. Other varieties I saw were Beurre Hardy, Bonne Luis d'Avranches, Conference. They also had several varieties of Apple, Plums and Gages.
Have got some good trees from Tesco and Lidl over the years but they are always bare-root and younger and they haven't all been successful. For just under a tenner these are more established and should be much easier to get going. Going on the size they should be producing fruit right from year one and will no doubt pay you back many times with years of tasty fruit!
Found these in Costco Watford but I imagine the deal should national. Cashier told me they had just come in Thursday and that as he remembered from last year these tend to go pretty quick.
