Fruit trees (apple, cherry, pear, plum, rowan), £5 each in store in Wilko.

These could be the best investments you make, supplying fruit for years, helping nature, and helping prevent climate change.

The trees Wilko sell include apples (braeburn and discovery), cherry (morello and sunburst - a sweet cherry from Canada), plum (victoria), pear and rowan / mountain ash. Only £5 each in store. These trees are ready to plant now and should start producing fruit in a couple of years.

All are good for wildlife, but nature lovers might particularly want to consider the rowan. As the Woodland Trust (woodlandtrust.org.uk/vis…an/) put it: "Flowers provide pollen and nectar for bees and other pollinating insects, while the berries are a rich source of autumn food for birds, especially the blackbird, mistle thrush, redstart, redwing, song thrush, fieldfare and waxwing."

Well they are trees.

Trees are both organic and indeed.. Found in nature.

Tesco are doing much older trees for 2 for £10. These don't look much …Tesco are doing much older trees for 2 for £10. These don't look much older than 3/4 years


Please take a photo of the Tesco ones and post it as a deal, and I will vote it hot. The more people that buy trees the better!

It seems to be hit and miss with these cheap trees. The apples and pears are okay but cherry trees are a fail. Just uprooted two eight year old stella cherry trees because they just wouldn't fruit. A friend has the same problem. I went and bought a quality stella from a nursery.
Buy the Victoria Plum. wonderful tasty fruit each summer, Well worth the £5 investment.
Just don`t get greedy for too much fruit, the plums will get very heavy and break the branches.
Plant,let it flower and when fruits set break them off and next year just eat a few and after that you will get lots.

My 2 cherry trees from them are 5 years old and are strong, solid and bear fruit every year.

I was going to, but forgot to snap a photo. They had the same apple, pear and cherry. But had atleast 4 different variants of apple available, and a number of pear varieties.

I agree, I've grown apple trees from seed and it's a long process but really rewarding. It's nice to be able to buy trees that are already fruit producing.

No doubt you are correct, however are these trees as nature intended or have they been “tampered” with by humans and supposedly been bettered

Judging by your tone im going to go with you are one of these 'anti-science' nutjobs.

As nature would have intended nope, because they would not be grown from seeds eaten and dispersed by animals then their large root structures dug up and sold for a fiver. They would have been grown in a pot in a mass greenhouse and appropriately pruned and fed to ensure decent and sustained growth when planted on.

Nothing done to these trees would cause harm to anyone or anything going near them.

They might have been grown on a grafted rootstock to aid with growth in the UK climate (as many of new planting fruit trees are in this day and age).

I mean i still don't really understand your question or the position it comes from but from what i am envisioning it probably has absolutely zero basis for anything of concern.

I mean if you are questioning this i really hope you don't eat about of fruit, especially lemons (as these were more than likely hybridised through human agriculture)

One word “ Monsanto”

One word “ Monsanto”


And there it is!
No doubt you are a super 'woke' mummy and Tracey on Facebook has given you some killer 'research' that backs up your understanding.

The fact that you ask the question that you did on this particular item shows you know naff all about GMO, what Monsanto actually do or anything remotely considered in that sphere apart from propaganda from Monsantoisevil.com.

I mean arguably Monsanto are a bad company that have done some bad things (like their dabbling in chemical weapons) but you are equating world changing science and development with evil and that is just so far from correct... Their business practices historically have been off base, but the notion of GMOs is sound.

Furthermore.. You do realise that Monsanto don't exist anymore right?

But you know what.. fight the 'power' and 'Big Pharma' despite not really understanding it.

There are some plant identification subreddits on reddit that are very good for this.

Pictures of the tree, leaves, fruit and cross section of fruit will get you to your answer usually
