I've had Peach & Lemon trees (both from Suttins) for the last 8 years and have had fruit off both. Both go outside for the summer & live quite happily in an unheated greenhouse through the winter.
It's 50/50 if these will survive, many are 28 day delivery, and that's leaving it very late in the season to plant bare rooted trees.

If you have purchased, water very well daily once planted and keep well watered till winter.

​Do you have space to heal them in for a couple of months before you move? Or attempt to pot grow for a few months.

I am guessing these will be 1-1.5m tall on delivery with a very small root mass.

​i can pot them at the moment. how big post will i need? is it safe to put from pot to ground in june
Dobies have a similar offer (are they the same company?) dobies.co.uk/Rea…rs/ but may be available instore?
you can get apple and pear trees in Asda for under a fiver
As a question, I bought a Dwarf Cherry Tree last month that is growing well but so far no Cherry Blossom. I know I need blossom to fruit but is it still too early to appear? I'm just wondering will I get any fruit this year. TYIA.

​Really depends on the size of the root ball, the smaller the pot, the more watering and more chance of the blowing over and getting damaged - so as big as you have available ideally.

Straight from pot to ground is fine, remembering to water well, and don't break up the root ball prior to planting.
HOT! Ordered 2 Apples and 1 pear, peach, and plum tree! Cheers OP!

​What cherry was it, and on what rootstock?

Either way, it's unlikely to flower this year now.

Even if it were to flower, any attempt at fruiting in the first year should be removed to give the plants energy to root formation.

Silly question - Did you get a normal size peach tree and grow it in a pot or a special dwarf tree?

I'm thinking of ordering some but only have space for 2 fruit trees to put in the ground and potentially 4 potted fruits.
As its my first time planting anything was wondering what the best things would be to buy....i'm based in the northwest so we dont get a lot of sun here.
TIA

​The Peach trees from here are on Montclaire rootstock, which is a dwarfing rootstock. This will limit the plants growing to around 3m.

Kept pruned, 2m will be achievable.

Occasionally rootstock don't dwarf quite as expected though, so be ware, this tree could potentially reach 5m, though unlike in this climate.

So potentially i could grow the peach tree in a large container or is not advised?
Would rather grow the soft fruits in pots so i can move them around depending on the weather

​Yes, you can grow in a pot. It will require more attention pot grown though.

You need to get a male and female so they polinate and then you will get fruit. Buying one tree probably won't work
Thanks a lot. I've been after a persimmon tree for a south facing bank for a while but they're normally very expensive.
I ordered a bunch of other stuff too because I may be moving in a couple of years and at this price, I'll grow them on in pots ready to create an instant orchard if I move.

​Most sold here are self-fertile, however partner tree are usually available within bee flight regardless.
Never really considered fruit trees in our garden - that's until I saw this post. Would love to have a couple of fruit trees in the garden (south-facing). I do have a few questions though and would be grateful for some answers please.

1. Lots of the trees say they should be planted between Nov-Mar. When the tree arrives, would it be best to put them in a large pot and then plant them later in the year? If so, where should they be kept between now and Nov? Indoor or outdoor?

2. I note that some of the apple trees say they need to be in the presence of other apple trees. If I choose a self-fertile apple tree, the 1 tree will be enough to yield some apples?

3. Out of all the apples on their website, which one is the sweetest and most juicy? Sorry X)

Thanks in advance.

​I would get them in the ground the day of arrival, give them a full bucket of water twice a day for at least 2 months, unless absolutely chucking it down all day.

In light showers, they will still need watering.

If I just had to pick one apple, I'd go for the Braeburn.

Put in a large pot with decent compost water in well should be OK for several months at least
Greengage and plum ordered for my allotment ...cheese op.
Showed this to my mother (gardener of 65+ years) and she seemed to think these would essentially be a stick. As someone else said, 50/50 whether or not it would even grow. She also suggested bare root should be planted in the autumn. I've not bothered; just got a 5ft apple and a 4ft pear from a local independent garden centre for £15 each and both have a load of flowers on already. I'd be keen to see what actually arrived if people wouldn't mind posting pictures?

They will do fine in big pots so long as you water them regularly through the summer.

Big companies like Suttons tend to keep their bare root trees in cold storage to **** growth.
I would expect them to arrive with closed buds and to be very late getting into leave.
They should however be fine so long as you get them into pots or into the ground straight away.
No rootstock on label but I thought that was only apples?

As an edit: vv It's self fertile as well

It's a Dwarf Patio Sunburst so I'm assuming it won't grow tall. I have it in a large pot but it's taken well but no blossom (yet). I help out at a community garden and we got apples, pears and plums planted this year at the same time I bought the Cherry tree and all of which are flowering. Should we remove the flowers? As it's their first year?

I'd look at what varieties are on sale and then hit the supermarkets trying to find them. Taste each one and see what you like best.

Remember this will do you many years so it's best to find one you like rather than just buy it cause it's £5.

How tall are these?
Interesting and worth a punt! I currently have an apple tree and picked up plum and pear to see. I'll take on board the suggestions to water daily.
