    Never heard of them but they could be part of the www.bakker.co.uk which is pretty similar to www.jparker.co.uk. Unlike the online nurseries, their delivery is substantially cheaper, less than 5 no matter what size the order. I have yet to find out what they're like until I get my fruit bushes sometime soon .

    Embarrassingly lots! Duo pear, dwarf peach, white currant, tayberry, cranberry and blueberry patriot (with fruits the size of cherries supposedly).

    Going by the book I got (The Edible Container Garden), it says minimum container depth of 18" for dwarf Peach (same for Nectarines & Apricot) and Blueberry. The duo Pear isn't dwarf so will plant in the ground. It says Currant only needs min of 1 ft deep container. Tayberry not recommended for container. Cranberry is creeping type so can be grown at the base of blueberry in the same pot as they both love acidic soil.
