This collection includes two popular garden varieties - Apple ‘Braeburn’ and Plum ‘Victoria’. Plus 2 tree guards to protect the trunks of your trees from rabbit, deer or pet damage.
Apple ‘Braeburn’ - Huge crops of bi-coloured, smooth skinned, crisp and juicy fruits that can be harvested from October. Apple ‘Braeburn’ is not self-fertile so if you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has an apple tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator. Height and spread: 2.5m (8’) Rootstock: M9 (Dwarf). Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years. Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.
Plum ‘Victoria’ - This reliable British bred garden variety produces heavy crops of egg shaped, medium sized fruits for harvesting in late August. Plum ‘Victoria’ is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Height and spread: 2.5m (8’). Rootstock: St. Julien A (Dwarf). Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years. Estimated time to best yields: 4 years.
Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water fruit trees during particularly dry periods.
See individual product pages for pruning instructions.
