yup, you sure can

Any ideas how long it will take them to fruit as I got told once planted it wud be five years before you see any fruit. Not a gardener tho so wasn't sure if it was correct.

got these about 2 or 3 years ago and last year we had our 1st fruit as we got 2 cox apples trees and had 3 on one and 4 on the other hopefully will get more apples this year.
also they tastes super

pretty sure its £5.99 for fruit trees at wilkinsons...dont know if these are two years old though

At Lidl we got them they were 2 for £10

fruit trees are £4 at Tesco

Not in pots though - thus not 'rooted' in soil they come with so will not thrive as well generally. In essence the tesco ones are bare rooted with some soil in a bag.

If you'll excuse the pun - your comparing apples 'n' pears.

can these stay in pots on my patio or are they going to grow several meters high and be a pain in the ass?

in now - said offer started today.

had an apple, cherry and plum tree for a while now.

The apple tree is going well!

it must be a secret how tall they grow

anyone know a cheap way to keep pests off?. the leaves on ours planted last year seem to get eaten or have black bugs on them sometimes.

I bought a few Apples, Pears, 2 Cherry's and a Plum, only the Pear survives and bears fruit.

But still fun to do.

Sugarsoap works well, or even just warm water with Fairy liquid in a spray, just coat them and after a few days and squirts they should go. Also try planting some from the list below to attach Aphid predators.

Achillea - ladybirds and lacewings
Alyssum – hoverflies
Angelica gigas – lace wings
Convolvulus minor – ladybirds and hoverflies
Cosmos bipinnatus – ladybirds and hoverflies
Daucus carota (Queen Anne's lace)- ladybirds, lacewings and hoverflies
Filipendulina – Ladybirds and lacewings
Foeniculum vulgare (fennel) - ladybirds and lacewings
Iberis umbellate – hoverflies
Limonium latifolium (Statice) – hoverflies
Lupin - hoverflies
Petroselinum crispum (parsley) – hoverflies
Tanacetum vulgare (tansy) – ladybirds and lacewings

didn't read they were in pots, but you could buy a plastic pot for a quid and re-plant it?
if they're anything like the cherry tree we have in the back garden its about 20-25 ft tall (grown over 20 years mind) and bears fruit every summer, lovely stuff!

thanks for the update regarding cherry tree size - plant at the bottom of the garden to avoid damage to foundations

thanks, useful information to avoid nasty surprises when biting into your otherwise scrummy fresh fruit

just wondering if these bear fruit if kept in their pots, and how big they grow if they are left in the pot. how much watering do they need ?

I can't see any mention of these on the website, I've selected my local store, does this mean my local doesn't have them in ?

I want the Weeping Willow, off work tomorrow so will go then, hopefully they have some left. Heat from me.

You will find them under gardening offers.

thanks, found them...will be off to lidl to pick up a few of each, some for myself, and some for family (to keep the old man busy LOL)

Cracking find..

Plant the willow in a different postcode from your house! Those suckers get large.
Plum trees get to about 20' tall and diameter. My patents have one some 20 years old. When it fruits it's impossible to pick all the plums. They look like bunches of grapes all over it and most go rotten on the tree or fall and go squishy underfoot before they can be harvested.

But the jam...! Sweet plum jam. It's worth it.

Very similar ... Apple (3 types), plum, cherry £5 at Morrisons.

Or, it might just be that conditions vary around the country and from garden to garden.

Got a cox apple tree from Lidl 6 years ago for £3.99, it is now 15ft high and last October we got 127 apples off it...

Wow, that was a good investment, given the price of apples now. Hopefully it's survived the winter

Have to say I'm not a lover of Cox. I like a nice pear though. oO

Not always. These are usually bare root trees that are moved to pots for selling as people dont thing it OK to have bare root plants. There should be no difference, though it is getting awfully late to plant trees - which should be planted in winter.
