Has anyone used these for fruit trees?

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 .Food for Free
Yes Veg I see your point, same photos. Out of interest what did you order?

Embarrassingly lots! Duo pear, dwarf peach, white currant, tayberry, cranberry and blueberry patriot (with fruits the size of cherries supposedly).Food for Free
Goodluck, what size pots do you intend to grow the dwarf trees in?

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.Food for Free
Gonna ask friends to get us dwarf trees for xmas instead on jumpers so I'll follow your guidence on the pot size
