Apple 'Bramley's Seedling' (patio)

Malus domestica

The most famous cooking apple of all, producing large fruits with a sharp acidic flavour that are ideal for making delicious pies and crumbles. Awarded an RHS AGM, Apple 'Bramley's Seedling' has good disease resistance to scab and mildew. Pick 'Bramley' apples from October when mature for immediate use or lay the fruits in a cool dry place for winter storage. They will store for up to 3 months.

All 'Bramley's Seedling' apple trees are 'triploids' and will set a partial crop by themselves. However, for the heaviest crops they are best grown with another apple. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator.

Apple 'Isaac Newton'

Malus domestica, Apple 'Flower of Kent'

  • NEW in 2014

Plant a direct descendant of one of the most historically important trees in Britain, a celebrated national treasure for over 300 years - Sir Isaac Newton's Apple tree! The original tree associated with Sir Isaac Newton's observations on gravity stood in the garden of his home, Woolsthorpe Manor; near Grantham. The tree is said to have fallen in a storm and has subsequently regrown on the site, and is still there to this day. It is from this tree that this Isaac Newton's Apple Tree has been propagated, offering a rare opportunity to grow a piece of history in your own garden.


Each tree comes with certification that the tree has been DNA verified as a direct descendant of the original tree in Woolthorpe Manor Gardens. The variety is known as the 'Flower of Kent', and produces hefty cooking apples with an old-fashioned, bumpy shape. The green skin flushes red where the sun shines on it and the fruit cooks to a soft puree with a refined, sweet flavour.


Grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock, the crowns of 'Isaac Newton's' apple trees are easily reached to prune, spray and pick your delicious fruit. Apple 'Flower of Kent' is not self fertile so it is best grown with another variety to ensure good pollination. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator. Height and spread: Up to 3m (10'). Rootstock: M26.


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.

Quince 'Leskovac' (patio)

Cydonia oblonga

A productive and hardy quince with a neat dwarf habit that makes it perfect for small gardens and patio containers. Like its larger cousins, Quince 'Leskovac' is clothed in beautiful rounded silver leaves and pretty green-pink flowers in spring. The fragrant, pear shaped fruits that follow ripen to a lovely shade of yellow, and can be harvested from October. Freshly picked quinces are bitter and inedible, but once cooked they soften to make excellent jams and jellies, and enhance the flavour of apple pies when a few slices are added before cooking.


Quince 'Leskovac' is propagated onto 'Quince Adams' rootstock. It is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Height and spread: 1m (39'). Rootstock Quince A.


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.
