    Default Patio Pear.cherry and plum

    I already have two fan trained apples on the fence but fancy a dwarf plum, cherry and pear to grow n pots.

    £34.92 inclusive of delivery is the best price I can find for the three potted dwarf plants online from Van Muewen.

    I had hoped there would be Boxing Day fruit sales online but I can't find any.

    This seems a lot cheaper price than other sellers online so I hope the quality is still there.

    Thanks, you are right VC prices are the same.

    I was wondering whether it was worth waiting until the new year in case any promotional codes became available?

    Just to bump this thread a bit. I ordered dwarf pear, dwarf cherry, dwarf plum and a Mulberry from T&M when they had a 20% reduction.

    I now have the pear, cherry and plum on the kitchen windowsill (still awaiting the Mullbery)


    We have about 3 inches of snow outdoors at the mo.The small pots they are in would probably freeze solid.

    Do I keep them inside, or put them out do you think? I also have large pots for them, but they would be lost in them at present. would I be better growing them on for a year in a MFB for a season before planting in final large pots do you think?

    They are patio dwarf fruit trees. At present they are in a 4 inch pot and look like a stick about 18 inches high.
