I've owned a dwarf cherry tree in a pot for 2 years. It produced flowers last year but no fruit. Does it need another cherry tree to pollinate or can I polinate the flowers myself by touching the flowers with a make up brush?

Also these may be 5 foot high but if their probably full root stock and grow to 20+ feet. I wouldn't buy these based on price, I'd find a variety of fruit I liked first and work out how much space I have to grow (for me it's a small patio so only pots will work). I'd spend a bit extra knowing the tree will last me years.

Gave some heat but consider my points before you buy.

My local one had cox’s orange pippin, which you don’t normally get in these offers.
These are extremely good , local garden suppliers stated they don’t stock as they can’t compete with the prices with these shops and supermarkets. Took a punt on a Victorian Plum and the growth in two years and fruit is staggering! I’m pretty sure had one for £3.49 from here even at £5 absolute steal!
Do they Have Pear Trees?
You type in apple plum or pear tree comes up with nothing... Or any fruit tree.
My local had Williams, Conference and doyenne du comice pears. Plums they had Victoria and Czar. Apples Granny Smith, golden delicious, Jonagold and Cox’s Orange Pippin. Cherry Stella and Maraschino. I expect there are others. It’s pot luck and they’re not online.

Fruit not coming from shops ???

Bought a Cox's in Aldi few years back, 6 quid then I think. Plus a Braeburn. Last year Cox was a bumper crop, but just 'one' apple on the Braeburn! I don't care, Cox is the best apple by a century mile.
If you don't want a tree, Aldi regularly do 6 English Coxes at 99p - never seen any other supermarket beat that price.
My fave apple too
Can't beat a Pink Lady Apple but you can't buy them for growing
Just remember that you are going to need two pears trees or two apples trees, cherry trees. Or you won't get any fruit.
Thanks for posting. These are a bargain.

Not as simple as that. Assuming that you are talking about cross pollination then needs to be different types of either apple tree or pear tree and even then you need to check cross pollination tables to make sure that they are from the right groups. The exception are self fertile trees but then a single tree is sufficient.

What about my cherry tree question above? i thought when I bought it, it didn't need cross pollination? I'm in a secluded area, probably wouldn't attract many bees, can I pollinate by hand?
Thanks so much OP. Been wanting some for ages. I got coherence pear, cox orange pippin, Victoria plum from Braintree. Planted this afternoon!

Just perusing the fruit and veg in all the supermarkets and a vast amount of it in winter comes from outside the EU.

I have a apple tree I got from there about 5yr ago. No problems with pollenation, the bees love it.
I got roughly 20 apples last year, you loose lots of baby apples due to birds or wind. Will probably get 25 - 30 this year. I do cut it back a fair bit as its growing so fast.

I also got a cherry tree and a plum tree I planted last year. Will probably get another apple tree too. Its brilliant being able to go out and collect the fruit, they do like lots of water in the summer so every few days it's worth going out and giving them a good water.

The fig trees we got the other year have produced an incredible amount of fruit.

You can but make sure you are in a secluded garden or you are at risk of public order offences.

I take it you are joking and don't really think that the whole world has summer fruits at the same time?

I got one last year and it really took off but didn't produce any fruit. Then in winter it list all is leaves. I'm seeing signs now of new leaves coming out so hopefully this year might get some fruit.

I'm growing mine in a big pot indoors.

Add 4-5 tea spoon pure honey in 1litre water and spray them on flower which will attract polinator insects.

What do you mean? Just pointing out we don't get that much fruit and veg from Europe in the winter as you also point out. Though Spain/Morocco still produce a very large amount. We get a large amount of our food from elsewhere these days. For example.South American/South African/India grapes in the winter are no different in price in the winter than what we seem to pay in the summer where we get them more locally.
None in any stores near me however the are also selling fruit trees 2 for £10 at the range
some are fruit trees are self pollinating some need another 2 or 3 varieties (same fruit) to pollinate before you get fruit.

do some research
