    Tr = Bare Root Transplant

    VAT is not chargeable on these plants.

Medium-sized, very long lived, columnar, deciduous tree, occasionally thorny, with glossy green leaves which often colour well in autumn. In early spring it is covered by a snowfall of white blossom in clusters of up to 3cm, sometimes tinged pink which is loved by bees, then setting small, edible, sweet but grainy, golden-yellow fruits for autumn which are lovede by birds, especially thrushes and blackbirds. It suckers freely so is excellent planted in a hedgerow as a small tree. It has been cultivated in Great Britain since 995 AD, but unfortunately is not common today. For more ornamental varieties see Pear Chanticleer or Weeping Silver Pear, and for fruiting varieties see the /plants/fruit/pear-trees/>fruit section.

TREE 9 x 4.6m (30 x 15ft) in 20 years, ultimate height 15m (50ft).

Bare-Root Plants (Transplants)

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.

Transplanted plants have been lifted from the ground and replanted. This encourages a better fibrous root system and makes the plant stronger and bushier.


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.
