Fruit and nut mix

The fruit and nut mix pack has all the trees you need to create your very own garden kitchen. Plant the trees in this pack and in a few years you could be sipping homemade sloe gin, setting crab apple jelly, making cherry jam or drinking hazelnut coffee with fruits and nuts from your own garden. This pack will also make your garden a beautiful place to be, with stunning blossoms and catkins, and will provide nectar and shelter for insects and other wildlife.

Each pack contains four trees: one hazel, one blackthorn, one elder and one crab apple. 

Hazel trees produce delicious hazelnuts during the autumn months.

Sloe berries come from the blackthorn tree and can be used to make sloe gin.

Elder flowers are often used to make wine, cordial or tea.The vitamin C-rich berries can also be used to make preserves and wine, or baked in pies with blackberries. 

The fruits produced by crab apple trees can be used to make crab apple jelly.

Please notethat due to unfavourable growing conditions this year, our rowan trees are shorter than other saplings. This will not affect their ultimate growth and they will thrive in spring.  

Estimate full grown height: 

Blackthorn: 6-7m, elder: 10m+ , hazel 10m+, crab apple: 7-9m.

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 and your sapling is dormant, as long as it is kept free from frost and wind as well as being kept moist and in light conditions then it will last a few weeks before planting.

Mar-Sept - Your sapling is growing fast and will need planting as soon as possible. Planting it immediately will ensure it does not dry out, lose nutrients etc.

On-going care requirements:

Once planted, your tree 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.

Delivery information: 

Free delivery is available for all tree orders and your trees will be delivered within 10 working days. You will receive a cell grown sapling, ranging from approximately 15cm-60cm in height. Orders comprising of more than 900 trees may take longer than the standard 10-day delivery window.

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. 

Please note that changes to regulations mean we are, unfortunately, currently unable to ship our trees to Northern Ireland. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
