We are starting despatching plants mail-order again, but have a large backlog to clear. Orders placed now will be delivered in around 2 weeks. Bare-rooted plants (marked br or tr) can only be sent when they are dormant (November – March).
The Garden Centre is currently open 10am to 4pm Sunday to Wednesday, and 10am to 6pm Thursday - Saturday, for more information see www.buckinghamgardencentre.co.uk.
Where possible please contact us by email as we have reduced number of staff available to answer phone calls. The mail order office if open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday.
MAIDEN TREES These are young trees suitable for growing into bush, half standard, fan-trained, cordon, pyramid, espalier, spindlebush or other trained forms.
FAN AND ESPALIER TREES For best results we recommend buying maidens and training them.
HALF STANDARD, BUSH, FULL STANDARD AND MINARETTES Full standard Conference available for special order for collection only from the Garden Centre. Other varieties can be obtained to order. Minarette (columnar) pears also available. Please phone or e-mail for more details.
ROOTSTOCKS Trees are supplied on rootstocks best suited to the form and variety of tree offered and able to thrive in a wide range of soil and conditions. Pears are normally supplied on Quince rootstocks. The rootstock will be marked on the plant label.
POLLINATION All pears require pollinators, although Concorde, Conference and Invincible will produce some fruit by themselves. To select a pollinator choose another variety of pear in the same group, previous group or following group (a table showing this is in our Pear Tree Pollination Guide). In areas where there are many pear trees growing it may not be necessary to plant a pollinator.
Buy any 3 pear or apple trees and save £4.50
