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.

I can also confirm there is no added VAT on these

Nice

Would give anything to have fruit trees but in Glasgow. ..no chance lol.

Bought a couple of palm trees from them a couple of years ago, never look after them but they are thriving, added bonus is, i suppose you can always return them, if the die.

good find op, heat added

You can definately grow many of these fruit trees in Scotland although you obviously need a garden and ideally a sunny spot which there may be less off in inner city Glasgow than Hertfordshire.
Would be interested to know if Costco stock these in their warehouses in the North and if so what varieties they sell?

Do these need to be planted or could you keep them in the pot? I've only got concrete but would really like a tree of some sort.

They come in a pot but will need to be planted in the ground at some point.
If you want to keep a fruit tree in a pot then you need to look specifically for a patio fruit tree which is a special dwarf variety.

Wow really? I'd literally pay someone to come plant an apple tree and ...whatever fruit tree possible that could grow in Glasgow. I don't know though lol I'm a little sceptical about the whole thing

I stayed in an Airbnb last autumn in Carnoustie and they had an amazing garden with mature fruit trees and were also growing lots of vegetables. Maybe because they are by the coast the weather is a bit milder than Glasgow but I'm sure the more hardy varieties would do o.k in Scotland.

There are many apple tree varieties you can grow in Glasgow see LINK
https://www.ashridgetrees.co.uk/gardening-advice/fruit-tree-advice/apple-trees-scotland-north-britain

I would advise minimum of 2 different apple trees on M27 rootstock from same pollination group, say, James Grieve and Sunset from Pollination Group C - both with frost hardy flowers and beautiful blossom and cracker apples.

They will need some sun and will grow no higher than 8' to 9'. Any good nursery will advise you.

Best wishes

I'd like to know which fruit tree you saw that was growing vegetables

Might get a couple of trees... always nice to see them blossom etc.

We stay in Aberdeen and liked the idea of fruit trees, so last year bought two apple and two pear from Costco, making sure that they were either able to self pollinate or were compatible with each other as there were no fruit trees we could see locally. So far nothing but hopefully early days. Why would fruit trees not grow in Glasgow? As long as you have natural light, enough soil and water, you should be good to grow.

​you can grow apples, pears and plums in Glasgow. I'm in Glasgow and I've got two apple trees. One gave me a decent number of apples last year, despite only being 2 years old.

I felt the same but you can actually. I've got a white peach tree from dobies (discontinued now) and it had peaches on it when it arrived but all fell off in transit except one. That grew into a pretty big peach and was delicious. I'm in Glasgow and my garden had like 6 hours of sun at most due to neighbouring hedges and it did that well. The only thing with peach trees is they are prone to leaf curl so find a resistant variety.

But otherwise, I've got neighbours with pear, apple, quince, medlar, cherry, plum, gage trees that all bare good fruit when they fertilize them. Just check varieties which do well here.

Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, gooseberries all do well too.

If you have a conservatory you can grow even more stuff.
