YouGarden Mini Orchard Fruit Tree Collection x 3
These top-quality, ‘Professional Standard’ fruit trees mean you can now grow full-sized crops in your garden or even in pots on your patio. What’s more, you can expect to be picking your first juicy fresh fruit in the first year. The crop will increase year on year, eventually giving you hundreds of pounds of produce per season and costing literally pe ies per lb over their long life of over 50 years. They are ‘self-fertile’ and grown on ‘dwarfing’ rootstocks so they will pollinate themselves and always be compact. The beautiful, fragrant blossom in spring will precede the fruits, with ‘Victoria’ cropping from July, ‘Conference’ in September and ‘Braeburn’ in October. Delicious fresh from the tree, they also make perfect jams and preserves or can be stored for later use – ‘Conference’ and ‘Braeburn’ will even keep until Christmas. Known for its sublime flavour and productivity – a fully established tree of this ‘self-fertile’ variety will produce up to 100lbs of fruit in a bumper season. Fruits are ready to pick each July. Grow your very own Mini Orchard from your own back doorstep. Varieties Include ‘Braeburn’ Apple: ‘Braeburn’ is the UK’s most popular eating apple variety by far and it will easily grow and flourish superbly in your garden. The crisp and juicy white-fleshed fruits have what is considered by most to be the perfect sweet/tangy flavour balance, literally providing a flavour explosion with every mouthful. The gorgeous fruit will be ready to pick fresh from your tree by mid-October each season and will store well until the end of January if kept chilled but frost-free. ‘Conference’ Pears: These produce a large crop of fruits with clear white flesh that are ready to pick each September. The long, tapering fruits are packed with an irresistible sweetness and lip-smacking juice that will drip from your chin when you bite into a ripe one. Because of its outstanding flavour, it remains the most popular pear grown in Britain by a long measure both in commercial orchards and home gardens. It is perfect for you to grow because it is very heavy cropping and when picked unripe, it is great for keeping for 2 or more months. ‘Victoria’ Plum: Named in honour of the much-loved Queen, ‘Victoria’ Plum is the UK’s favourite plum variety by a mile and deservedly so. The delicious fruits are ready to pick each July and taste simply mouth-watering when eaten straight from the tree. With the remaining fruit, you can make jams and preserves and of course, eat them stewed with custard. This collection includes 3 top quality, self-fertile, compact fruit trees so you can grow fruit even in smaller gardens or on the patio. Although compact, they’re heavy cropping, with fruits produced from July through to October. You may even pick your first juicy fresh fruit in the first year with an increase in crop year on year saving you money on expensive supermarket prices. You get 1 each of Apple ‘Braeburn’, Pear ‘Conference’ and Plum ‘Victoria’ as 1.2m bare-root trees, to plant out while dormant.

Care Information Once established, apples and pears need very little care. Water during dry spells especially if newly planted or in containers. In early spring, sprinkle a general fertiliser around the base of the tree. Apples & pears should be pruned every year. Timing and method of pruning depends on the type of fruit you are growing, and the style of tree. Plum trees will additionally need to have fruit thi ed to ease congestion and weight on the branches. Your crop of plums can be greatly increased by regular feeding and watering. Because they can set heavy crops, plums respond well to fertilisers, especially nitrogen. Established trees can be mulched in mid-spring to help retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and provide nitrogen. Pruning should be carried out in spring or summer – avoid pruning in the dormant season or in mid to late autumn, as there is risk of infection from silver leaf disease and bacterial canker.
