Create your own fruit trees by using the age old art of grafting. It is an excellent way to make a young tree from an old favourite which is now old and not fruiting well, to create a tree from an unknown but delicious variety in a friend’s garden or it is even a way of taking a favourite from your own garden to a new garden if you are moving house. All you will need will be the scion wood from the tree, an appropriate rootstock, a good knife, some grafting sealant and some grafting tape.

If the idea of producing your own fruit tree appeals to you but you know you do not have the appropriate skills, then come to our annual Graft and Grow (Apple Scion Swap) Event held over a weekend in February. At this there will be an expert in the art of grafting who will be able to show you the way to tackle this age old craft, or do it for you. For more details please refer to our Garden Centre web site www.buckinghamgardencentre.co.uk.

St Julien A Rootstock is suitable for plum, gage, damson, apricot, peach or nectarine trees. It is semi-vigorous and tolerant of heavy soils with no stake needed when the tree is established. Early fruiting in 3 to 4 years. Ideal for fan-training. Approximate height when trained as bush 16ft (4.9m) but this can vary considerably depending on soils and the variety being grafted.

Br = Bare Root Plant

Bare-Root Plants

Bare-root plants are sold without a pot/soil around the roots. This is a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way of growing plants. To ensure the best plant health we do not store our plants in cold storage, but they are left in our field or plant beds until they are ready for packing or collection.

Items marked Br are bare rooted plants grown from cuttings and are typically 1-2 years old.


Bare rooted plants are only available when the plants are dormant (typically from late November to March).

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.
