I know it's a bit early to think about gardening - but this offer seemed too good to miss. B&M have just put out a variety of fruit trees, (Victoria plum, cherry, pear, apples etc) all good sizes (1.4m to 1.6m) for £4.99 each or 2 for £8.
I'm not hugely 'green fingered' but I did have a close look at these and ended up buying 4. The roots were good and they all had new growth and fresh shoots.
I paid a lot more for 'twigs' from a very reputable garden centre and they were rubbish. These look very promising.
They also had fruit shrub plants and rose bush plants for £1.69.
I bought a lovely raspberry cutting, it had 4/5 new shoots already growing.

good find op, heat added

Be careful with the raspberry, it'll end up popping up all over your lawn!

Good price got some bushes from Poundstretchers the other day for same price and the fruit trees are the same price too.

Good advice .. House we bought had these planted .. Took ages to dig as much out as I could and they do pop up everywhere as stated .

Would these fruit this year or would the tree have to mature?

Link not working for me and no joy searching site :-(

Says instore mate

is it too early to plant these outside?

Thanks OP, will have a look when I visit B&M next time.

Those who are considering planting fruit trees - now is a good time to plant them outside as long as soil is workable (not frozen solid). Bare-root plants/trees do best when planted during dormancy.
Some plants/trees will give fruits in the first year but others will not fruit for a while or fruit very lightly in the first year.

To stop this, we planted our raspberry canes in a big tub and they have done really well without taking over the garden!

Alternatively, you can use 4 paving slabs to create 4 sides of a 'pot' buried in the ground, using pebbles for the bottom.

Wish the previous owner had done that , hard graft digging it out

Make sure you know exactly which tree variety you are buying. Many are on poor root stock or Miniature/Patio varieties. You may also have to consider whether they are capable of pollination which depends on surrounding availability of alternative trees. Check the following website for information on Pollination.

Dealers choice, although at 1.4 to 1.6m if it takes fine then it's big enough to produce something, especially if you manage it right so it doesn't waste it's energy. Pollination is the biggest impediment usually, that's why it's often a good idea to buy more than one tree.
