I don't normally do this (perhaps I should!) but I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the fruit bushes,etc. They arrived this morning and after undoing the excellent packing I was impressed with how strong and healthy the plants were. I have spent a very pleasant spring day heeling everything in. So thanks once again for your prompt and efficient service - I look forward to my first crop of soft fruit this summer and for many years to come!! Regards, Lynn Cadman

The succulent fruits of the Apricot tree can be enjoyed throughout the summer months, and we've taken the time to select a variety of apricot trees for sale that will flourish in our British climes.
Our selection includes winter hardy varieties that can be grown under protection or outside, giving our customers greater choice. Good flavour is our favourite defining characteristic. More...
Apricots and Apricot trees have a long, rich history of cultivation, originating from across the sun-soaked Middle East, Mediterranean and Asia. More recently colonisation and human travel has seen Apricot trees introduced to far-flung corners of the world, with cultivars cropping up and being established throughout America and Australia. The good news is that because Apricots are hardier than their peach 'cousins' and prefer a period of cold dormancy, they can easily be grown in our British climate.
During the 'dormant season' of November through to April the Apricot trees for sale in our online catalogue are supplied direct as pruned bare root trees, ready for planting into the ground. During the late Spring and Summer we are able to provide our Apricot Trees as as pot-grown specimens.
Although our Apricot tree listing doesn't represent a full itinerary of all apricot trees suited to growing in the diverse British climate, it does represent the 'cream of the crop'. We have taken the time to carefully research and trial each apricot tree variety that you see on offer. As such, we list only what we believe to be the best of the bunch, with flavour as the defining factor in our selection process.
As with many products within our website, the more you buy, the more you save! Buy three, five or more Apricot, Peach or Nectarine trees and you can enjoy extra discounts per tree on your order. For advice or recommendations on the best Apricot tree for your garden, allotment, greenhouse or conservatory, why not call Victoriana Nursery Gardens today and we'll be more than happy to help.
