Tansy plants not easy to find, but Victoriana have them on their very extensive sales list. Our order was delivered promptly and the Tansy plants arrived in very good condition. We were pleased with the efficient service.

Pollinator Friendly

Similar to 'Nijisseiki', this Asian Pear produces medium to large yellow fruits with a thin skin. The almost pure white flesh within is gorgeously juicy and has a satisfying crunch to it.

Fruits will hang well on the tree, but will also store well for up to three months.

Also known as Nashi, Sand, Oriental, Chinese or Sahli Pears.

  • Despite being recognised as Self Sterile these actually prove to be partially self fertile and can produce small crops without a pollinator - though pollination by another Pear (Asian or a conventional European variety) will maximise yield.
  • Grown on Pyrus betulifolia 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).
  • Harvest early August - the fruit is ripe when it pulls easily from the tree.

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

Recommended by the RHS to assist in encouraging bats into the garden as the flowers are likely to attract moths and other night-flying insects which bats love to eat!
