Aldi has a range of fruit trees in store, including different varieties of apples, pears and cherries. It's great to plant a tree or trees in your garden, as they provide a home for nature and help the environment, as well as looking lovely and providing you (and birds) with a supply of food. Check the label carefully when buying as some fruits are for eating and others for cooking.

For more information on planting trees, please see woodlandtrust.org.uk/pla…ce/

just be careful, might be 2m now but i know cherry and apple trees grow big, within 3-4 years they'll be massive. good price though.
For most modern gardens (i.e. small) you'd do better going to a garden centre and getting one that is on dwarf root stock. Made the mistake of not doing that once and I have to get cutting the tree back viciously while the ones on dwarf stock get a light prune.

Also need to consider if it's self fertile or what others trees are around, you normally need 2 trees that blossom at similar times if you want fruit.

Not voting either way as it's a far price if you have a big garden.

Yes, of course, that is the beauty of them.

They can be pruned, or even grown in a pot, but best to plant them in the ground and let them grow tall.

Some good advice here: woodlandtrust.org.uk/pla…es/
Will keep an eye out - thanks
Although it says British Grown any idea what variety the various trees are?
Had a look this morning, have some excellent native British vairities, a lot of them are self pollinating. Great find.
I bought a plum tree from Aldi about two years ago now. It said that it would grow to no more than 7ft tall, but now I'd say it is just over 14ft tall. Is it ok to prune a plum tree back and if so, what is the best time to do it and how far should it be pruned back? Thank you.

14ft is probably as tall as it will grow, so does it need to be pruned?
