An entire orchard on just one tree! Family fruit trees have three different varieties grafted onto one stem, which will pollinate each other and crop at different times to extend the picking season. Perfect for the smaller garden with room for only one tree; and even suited to growing in a large patio container (holding at least 30 litres of compost). Each tree will include a balanced mix of varieties with similar growth and vigour, and importantly offer very good pollination to ensure fruit on each variety each year. Each variety will be a popular eating apple or pear - we can't say exactly which varieties will be included at the time of ordering, but their exact names will be revealed on delivery! Apple rootstock: MM106. Pear rootstock: Quince A. Height and spread if not containerised: 4m (13').
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.
Collection comprises 1 family apple tree and 1 family pear. Harvest from September.
2 bare root fruit trees - 1 apple tree and 1 pear tree (Apple: M1106 Rootstock) (Pear: Quince A) (99584)
Plant patio fruit trees in containers holding at least 30 litres of good quality compost such as John Innes No.3. Alternatively plant them in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level, firm them into the ground and water well.
Feed and water containerised plants regularly. Prune only the tips of the main branches by one third in winter. Some sub branches can be pruned out when necessary at the union where they join the main branch, to allow new sub branches to take their place.
In order to produce the best quality, largest fruits, the apples and pears should be thinned in July leaving two fruits remaining per cluster.
