We collect, conserve, grow and sell trees of traditional British fruit varieties. They are container grown, can be planted at any time of year and can be collected from the nursery or sent out by courier throughout the year. Please see opening times below.
An 84 page descriptive catalogue is available for a modest charge. Please telephone. There is no online ordering of trees, given the range and quickly changing availability. Our trees are rare and living things, which cannot be ordered up out of a warehouse. Customers are welcome to advice at the nursery or on the telephone.
Our range includes several hundred varieties covering apples, pears, plums, gages, cherries, vines, medlars, quinces, and some soft fruit. We also graft new trees from customers' own treasured old ones. Our trees are grafted on a range of rootstocks and customers can choose whichever is most suitable for the shape and size of tree, bush or restricted form they want.
 
 
 
 
 

 

Much of our work involves research and conservation of old varieties, ancient trees and orchards. If you have any knowledge of these, which you think would be of interest to us, please let us know. They are fast disappearing and time is pressing. Often, we advise private owners of trees and orchards on an informal basis, but we also undertake more formal consultancy on a fee-paying basis for larger and longer term projects. Please telephone for details.

MARTIN STEVENS 1919-2017

After a full and varied life, which included a wide interest in fruit trees, Martin Stevens, of Holmer Green, Buckinghamshire, died recently, aged 97. He was quite a character and it was always a great pleasure to meet him and exchange experiences and knowledge on such a wide range of subjects including, of course, fruit varieties. His knowledge was very deep. Thanks to his careful husbandry of his father's trees, which he added to, we now have several old and important varieties with us, which would not have survived without him. Just as he passed them to us, we pass them on. His legacy will always be deeply appreciated.
