    Default Fruit and vegetable company

    Does anyone know much about this company? They have an offer on at the moment for every three fruit trees you buy (14.95) you get the fourth half price. If anyone has had stock off them would be interested. If anyone has any good suplliers of fruit trees, who are relatively cheap (haven't got lots of money and many trees to buy!). Let me know. Will be growing mine over arches next year. Looking for apples and pears.

    It's a fairly new company. I got my winter onions from them last year and they were great so I ordered this winters onions from them. With fruit I always use Ken Muir. Everything we have bought has always been good quality and I would use Ken Muir again if I ever needed any more fruit bushes. www.kenmuir.co.uk or Deacons Nursery 01983 840750 have a big selection. Price wise I think the Fruit And Veg Company will be cheaper.

    Buckinghamshire Nurseries are great. I ordered two apple and one plum tree from them (12.95 each). They call/email you about delivery and if you have any special requests they accomodate you. The trees came well packaged and look healthy (at least for this time of year). Its me first attempt at gowing them so I have my fingers crossed!

    Hi Andrewo

    I may be too late in answering (only just discovered this forum) but I've had lots of plants from the Fruit & Veg co (they do ornamentals too as offers in other mags) - maybe about 30 in total - and they've all been very good bar one specimen - and when I pointed that out it was immediately replaced. I'm afraid I haven't ordered any fruit trees from them but in general I can recommend them.

    Default First tree arrived today

    My braeburn arrived today, and the quality seems to be excellent, so it will be planted tomorrow. Came in the nick of time, I just had two arches made for the fruit tunnel. Will let you all know and post up pictures. The specimen is nicely grafted to an M9 stock and quiet mature. Fantastic quality. Let's see if it grows.

    Default Braeburn

    Braeburn planted and pruned to shape, reduced the laterals to 7" to create short fruiting spurs over the archways (had them made, cost 28 for two archways).
