Delivery timescales

99% of deliveries made within a week of placing the order (other than agreed pre orders) and many are despatched on the day we receive the order.  There is a slightly longer delivery timescale on trees over 2.5m in height (all the trees called Standard, Premium Standard, Heavy Standard or Extra Heavy Standard, all called Mature Trees) because normal "next day" carriers find them too large to handle so we have to group orders together into geographic areas for a haulage contractor to deliver and this all takes a bit of scheduling (but it's worth it when you see these wonderful mature trees!). 

Gift trees required for arrival on a specific date (or indeed any tree required for delivery on a specific date) can be accommodated with pleasure and at no extra charge - we normally plan to deliver a day or two before the special day just to be on the safe side and although we really don't like to give ourselves wriggle room (because we so rarely need it!), we do have to say that we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

Bare root trees and fruit bushes can only be dispatched from mid-November - mid April/late April (depending on weather conditions) and whilst they are dormant.

The vast majority of trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your order unless we contact you (normally just the most mature trees where the driver may need help getting the tree/trees off the vehicle).  You can give us instructions on where to leave your delivery either via the checkout or send us a separate email.

Trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections despatch charges will be refunded.

Delivery costs

Orders for our popular range of 1.5/2.0m height trees to UK mainland ex Highlands have a delivery charge of £9.95 plus vat (Highlands charge will be applied in the check out).  Smaller trees/bushes are charged at £6.95 plus vat (again Highlands charge applied in the check out).  On orders for several trees, delivery costs increase to £12.95 (and honestly that doesn't nearly cover what it costs us in cardboard and carriage charges!) but you can buy several trees (or hundreds of trees if you wish) for the same delivery cost.  Highlands charges start to get a bit expensive if you require several trees which our customers in the Highlands will be well aware of - we wish we could help more but you're such a long way from Yorkshire!

Mature trees are more expensive to deliver and cost varies by postcode but again you can buy more than one tree for the same delivery cost so if you do need 2 or more, and particularly if you are planting a good number of trees, it works out to be really economical.  Delivery costs are calculated automatically in the shopping trolley so try adding an extra tree or bush for no extra delivery charge.

Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and overseas destinations

Our courier charges are not viable for just one or two trees but if you have a larger requirement please do speak to us and we'll do what we can to get trees to you at a reasonable cost.

Planting advice for Peregrine Peach Trees

Planting density

Peach and nectarine trees should be spaced at approx. 3m between trees.

Preparing the site

When planting peach or nectarine trees, such as a Peregrine Peach Tree, it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown peach trees can be planted at any time of the year. Bare root peach trees need to be planted between November and March. If you are not planting your bare root peach tree straight away, it is best to ‘heel in’ your tree. Dig a hole in an unused area of soil and pop the roots of the tree in, gently firming around. If you’re planting within a couple of days, you can untie the bag around the roots, water, re-tie and then store in a frost free garage or shed.

Whether planting a pot grown or bare root peach tree, you will need to carry out the following to prepare your planting site. Firstly, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole then dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 3x as wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around inside the hole. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees or prepare and apply the gel mixture for bare root trees), especially if you have poor soil. Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole.

Using 50% of the original soil and 50% compost (avoid multi-purpose), fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems.

We recommend planting fruit trees using a stake and tie kit. To see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

Watering

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young fruit tree and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. To check if the soil requires further water, dig a finger down just a few centimetres into the soil and if the soil feels even slightly moist, it does not need further watering. If it feels dry, water and repeat this test again. Once you see the fruit begin to swell, water again. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass around the area as this will only encourage it to grow more vigorously.

We strongly advise using a rabbit guard to protect your young tree as just one peckish rabbit or hungry deer can chew around the trunk, killing your tree before it has a chance to establish.

Pruning advice for Peregrine Peach Trees

Unlike some of our other fruit tree varieties, peach and nectarine trees should not be pruned whilst dormant. The best time to prune your nectarine or peach tree is after the coldest part of the winter has passed but before they start to flower. February is normally a safe time, depending on how severe the winter has been. Peach and nectarine trees require quite hard pruning and should look a little gappy but will soon improve once the flowers come to life in early spring. Both nectarine and peach trees fruit on 1 year old wood so the pruning technique for these trees is sometimes referred to as ‘replacement’ i.e. replacing old wood with new wood.

When pruning your peach or nectarine tree, you should aim to have between 3-5 main branches, forming an open, vase-shape. Remove any old shoots (grey in colour) as they will not produce fruit. Also remove any damaged, dead or diseased branches. Make sure the centre of the tree is open, allowing air and sunlight to reach inside. The branches that are one year old will be pinky red in colour and should be trimmed back to approximately 45cm in length.
