Fruit and nut mix
In a few years you could be sipping sloe gin, making apple pie, cooking wild cherry jam or drinking hazelnut coffee all grown in your own fruit and nut harvest garden. Each pack contains a mixture of Hazel, Blackthorn, Crab apple and Wild cherry trees. Each pack contains 4 trees: 1 x Hazel, 1 x Blackthorn, 1 x Crab apple and 1 x Wild cherry.
Estimate full grown height: Hazel: +10m, Blackthorn: 6-7m, Crab apple: 7-9m, Wild cherry: 18-25m.
Purchase size and growth: These trees are cell-grown saplings, ranging from approximately 15cm-60cm in height. Cell grown trees can be planted all year round in most situations as long as they are given the correct care. Please be aware that depending upon the time of year you receive your sapling (particularly early spring) it may not look very perky upon arrival. Please do not worry - once it has been planted it should pick up quickly.
UK and Ireland Sourced and Grown (UKISG): Every sapling that we provide is UK and Ireland sourced and grown to minimise the risk of importing and spreading tree pests and diseases. Seeds are collected and stored in the UK and Ireland, and they are all coded and batched so that we can track each individual tree.

Planting information: As a rough guide, trees are usually planted at around 2m intervals but please take into account the final size of the tree and be aware of buildings, services and other plants nearby to ensure that damage cannot occur from the roots and canopy as the tree grows.
Oct - Feb - This is the best time of year for planting trees as your saplings are dormant. As long as they are kept moist and in daylight, free from frost and wind, then they will last a few weeks before planting.
March - Sept - Your saplings are growing fast and will need planting as soon as possible. Planting immediately will ensure they do not dry out, lose nutrients etc.
On-going care requirements: Once planted, your trees will need some care and attention for a few years; this will mainly be weeding around the base to reduce the competition for nutrients and ensuring your tree has enough water. For more information about caring for your trees, click here.

Please be aware that depending upon the time of year you receive your sapling (particularly early spring) it may not look very perky upon arrival.
