Not as fashionable as fruit at the moment, but they also had a tremendous collection of old roses at Scotts. Grandad grew those too, but they didn't survive as long as the apple trees, I killed the last of them off in the 90s through ignorant pruning.

Yes I have spoken to this guy, he's working in loose association with Common Ground. He has an interesting business model, it is sort of an online charity shop.

I was at the Harrogate Spring Flower Show yesterday and bought some fruit trees from Mr D'Arcy's Heritage fruit Trees They are really good quality strong trees and the owner is a really lovely, helpful man. We got a Meeches Prolific quince for 29.99, an Old English Greengage on a pixy rootstock for 24.95 and a Scotch Dumpling apple for 24.95. All were 3 year old half standards in 12L containers and the apple was absolutely covered in blossom.

He had a lot more varieties at the show than he has on the website and apparently he only posts out the 1 year old maidens but I''m sure his nursery would be amazing.

http://www.blackmoor.co.uk/ - blackmoor fruit nursery

Just bought a tree, grape vine and a few bushes (one was potted)

Very good service, everything extensively well packaged.

Giant tree box for my bareroot bramley 20 M26 is a fantastic cat toy - much fun is being had dashing in and out and attacking each other through it.

I've just received a fruit tree catalogue from Bernwode Fruit Trees. It's a great read with loads of information and history. They stock many old and unusual varieties and will also graft a favourite tree onto a rootstock if required. The trees are container grown not bare root. I haven't ordered yet but intend to (they stock a Dorset plum I'm after). They are based in Buckinghsmshire.

Website link here. http://www.bernwodefruittrees.co.uk/ There are also some interesting articles (ancient fruit trees, identifying fruit trees and aging by ring count) under 'Read More'.
