Our Feedback

Very impressed with the cherry trees recieved in perfect condition.planted as per instructions.I would like advice, as now I have got them I am told I will never have cherries as the birds always get there first.As the trees max height is 8ft is there some way I can protect them and when is it the beast time to offer this protection. I would be grateful for your advice. Webmasters Reply: Here on the nursery we have found hanging old cd's in the tree the most effective method of control; these must be in place from approximately mid March until after the fruit has been harvested.

An old Victorian variety that is often likened to Cox. In reality this is a superior variety with a larger fruit and a truly 'appley' flavour.

  • Season of use October - January.
  • First introduced 1897, Bedfordshire, UK.
  • Self Fertile - but pollination by another apple will maximise yield.
  • Grown on M26 rootstock for an ultimate (un-pruned) height of 8 - 12 feet (2.4 - 3.65 metres) but can easily be kept at a height of 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 metres).

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

Available from approximately mid November 2014
