This seems a good offer not to miss. B&M have just put out variety of fruit trees (apple, cherry, pear trees etc) in good sizes 1.4m to 1.6m for £4.99 each. Is only an instore offer.

I asked the staff and they told me is nationwide, I got mine in Leeds store.

Can never be enough fruit trees about heat added
I have 2 apple trees I got a few years ago from b&m, they give me plenty of apples year after year.
I got a cherry and a plum tree this year too.
Wow I'd love fruit trees. Don' think theyd grow in Glasgow to produce much fruit tbh. For eg, if I were to buy one, is it a simple case of planting it or is there more to it? Lol sorry if it' a silly question, complete novice to garden related things!
Good price. Just need a garden now

This maybe a daft question but would they keep in a big plant pot or are the massive after a few years? I only have concrete in my back garden
Yeah... both mine died. Bit sickly
Also saw these in the Doncaster (Town centre) store today. Absolute bargain for the size they are.
Got one of these 7 years ago ,thought never get any apples .7 years on its 25 ft high and I’m getting around 20+ apples of it every year
A lot of these cheap trees are from Europe and are specimens that are not native to the British Isles. No matter where they are from they will most likely need another tree nearby that flowers at the same time to cross pollinate them in order to give a crop. The question regarding the height they will grow to depends on what root stock they have been grafted onto but most I have seen will grow to around 2 metres. There are specimens that will grow to Bush height on a patio but it should specify this on the label.
IMO you get what you’re willing to pay for and I wouldn’t hold my breath at getting a decent crop from these
Don't expect fruit until the 2nd year after you plant them.

they just need a sunny spot, but preferably sheltered near a fence.

You need to cut most fruit trees back yearly, or they just grow and won't fruit much. You can't just leave them. Before the birds get them I got about mid 30's - 40 apples from a 4yr old tree, if you can keep them from the baby apples your ok. I get a decent mid 20 odd per tree, about 6ft high young tree. although it could be more. when they were ripened I just picked from the tree, and when needed harvested I got a washing up bowl full to the brim per tree.


you just cut back any branches which look like they are in the way, or any ones which try to grow upwards. the idea is to make them grow as sideways as you can. Just google pruning apple trees etc.
You control the tree, don't be scared of hacking branches off, the little blighters put too much effort into growing instead of fruiting if not.

A huge pot will be fine you will just have to make sure you water it lots and fertilise it every year. Just keep it well trained and cut any branches off growing too fast. I keep mine to about 6ft high. If they are pot grown just don't expect as many apples and it could be tricky to keep under control.
so mines about 6ft5 tall and if I put my arms out to full stretch it's that wide.

Yes, plant one in a spot that gets some sunshine and you should get plenty of fruit although maybe not for the first couple of years.
