Pear 'Concorde'

Pyrus communis, Patio fruit tree

A manageable, compact, tree that is ideal for container growing. Pear 'Concorde' produces a heavy crop of pale green, large pears with firm flesh and excellent flavour, even on a young tree. The fruits are ready to harvest from September to November and will store well until January. Enjoy them at their best by picking 'Concorde' pears slightly under-ripe, store them in a cool place and bring them indoors to ripen slowly.


Grafted onto 'Quince A' rootstock to produce a tree with moderate vigour and promote fruiting at an early age. These strong growing trees are partially self-fertile but make the ideal planting partner for other varieties such as 'Williams Bon Chretien' to aid pollination and increase the yield. 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. Rootstock: Quince A. Height and spread: Up to 4m (13').


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

Medlar 'Nottingham'

Mespilus germanica, Dutch Medlar, Minshull Crab

Considered the best flavoured Medlar, producing a heavy crop of medium sized fruits with a interesting caramel flavour. Medlar trees have a flat topped weeping habit, with large white spring flowers and attractive leathery leaves that turn to shades of golden orange in autumn. The russet coloured, apple shaped fruits are excellent eaten with wine, port and cheese, although are more commonly used to make into preserves or the Victorian delicacy Medlar cheese.


Grafted onto a 'Quince A' rootstock, to create a productive tree with moderate vigour. 'Nottingham' is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Medlars will begin to fruit 3 or 4 years after planting. Root wrap plant supplied. Height and spread: 4m (13'). Rootstock: 'Quince A'.


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 4 years.

Pear 'Red William'

Pyrus communis

Pear 'Red William' is a wonderful red version of one of the most popular pear varieties in the world. This red 'clone' is just as sweet as the original William's pear but with the added attraction of red skin and being slightly more dwarf than Pear 'Williams Bon Chretien'.


Grafted onto 'Quince A' rootstock to produce a tree with moderate vigour and promote fruiting at an early age. These strong growing trees are partially self-fertile but make the ideal planting partner for Conference or Concorde to aid pollination and increase the yield. 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. Rootstock: Quince A. Height and spread: 3m (9').


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 6 years.

Apple 'Sir Isaac Newton'

Malus domestica, Apple 'Flower of Kent'

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 Sir 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 Sir'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.

Pear 'Gormande'

Pyrus communis, Pear

  • Voted best for flavour

For anyone new to growing garden pears, Gourmande is the perfect option. Bullet-proof disease resistance makes this the ideal choice for growing pears at home. The large cobby fruits are more akin to apples in shape, but it’s the flavour that makes these pears stand out from the crowd. Pear Gourmande has been voted the best flavoured pear by judges at the annual National Fruit Show. Thanks to a high juice content, the fruits drip with sweet perfumed juiciness when eaten fresh, and simply melt in the mouth when poached or baked.


Our Pear Gourmande bare root trees are grafted onto 'Quince A' rootstocks to produce trees with moderate vigour and fruiting potential at an early age (cropping usually starts at four years old). This strong growing pear is partially self-fertile but is best planted with another variety so cross pollination can increase yield. Rootstock: Quince A. Height: 4.5m (15’)

Medlar 'Westerveldt' (patio)

Mespilus germanica, Dutch Medlar, Minshull Crab

You can now grow this unusual fruit on your patio! Medlar 'Westerveldt' is a compact clone which has been grafted high up on to 'Quince C' rootstock to encourage an even more compact habit. Ideal for growing in large containers, this small tree produces large white flowers in spring followed by full-sized medlar fruits in the autumn. The attractive leathery leaves turn to shades of golden orange in autumn making this a worthwhile specimen plant for the patio. The russet coloured, apple shaped fruits are excellent eaten with wine, port and cheese, although are more commonly used to make medlar jelly or the Victorian delicacy Medlar cheese.


Grafted onto a 'Quince C' rootstock, to produce a compact tree with moderate vigour. This Medlar is well suited to growing in small spaces and 60cm (24") diameter containers. 'Westerveldt' is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Medlars will begin to fruit 2 or 3 years after planting. Height and spread: 1m (3') (if containerised). Rootstock: 'Quince C'.

Apple 'Spartan'

Malus domestica

A juicy, refreshingly sweet apple that is instantly recognisable by its deep maroon colour. Apple ‘Spartan’ is also an excellent pollinator for other apple trees and so is extremely useful in any collection. Later to ripen than some varieties, the fruit will happily sit on the tree for two weeks or more before needing to be harvested, meaning you can spread out your picking and not end up with too many at once. Height: 4m (157"). Spread: 3m (118"). Rootstock: MM106 More info
