As promoted in June’s Bristol Allotments’ Newsletter, the Forest of Avon Trust is pleased to be able to offer the following pot- grown bush apple trees for £20 collection from Ashton Court late October/ early November:

  • Ashmeads Kernel, (Gloucestershire): eating apple, harvest October, flowering group 4; rootstocks: M27 and M9;
  • Blenheim Orange, (Oxford): eating & cooking apple, harvest October, flowering group 3; rootstock: M27;
  • Bramley’s Original, (Nottinghamshire): cooking apple, harvest October, flowering group 3; rootstocks: M27, M9;
  • Bramley’s Seedling, (Nottinghamshire): cooking apple, harvest October, flowering group 3; rootstock: M27;

  • Egremont Russet, (Sussex): eating apple, harvest October, flowering group 2; rootstock: M27, M9;
  • Worcester Pearmain, (Worcester): eating apple, harvest September, flowering group 3; rootstock: M27.

The rootstocks above are dwarfing and will result in a guideline tree size of 2 metres (M27) and 2.5 metres (M9), respectively. All will need supporting with stakes/ wires and high levels of weed control and watering. All these varieties will pollinate each other.

Bush apple trees at least two years old and are approximately 1.2 to 1.5 metres high, including compost filled pot.

We can also supply pot grown pear trees on Quince C rootstock (£21), blackberries, raspberries and stakes + ties, mats + pegs and rabbit guards.

As a guide a maximum of three dwarf fruit trees can be planted on an allotment. In all cases, planting needs to be (simply) checked with Bristol’s Allotments team on (0117) 922 3737.
