What is a Bareroot tree?
What is a bareroot fruit tree as compared to a potted tree? Lifting a young fruit tree is possible because it is dormant in the winter.. Bare root trees are field grown and have a innate hardiness that enables successful replanting in your garden. All commercial fruit trees tend to be bareroot for ease of planting and cost. Our methodology is the same, we like the choice we can offer.. the ease of transport.. the environmental consideration of not using pots, compost or heating… best of all our trees are tough as old boots and we feel fully confident that the 1 year guarantee we offer on all stock wont be needed.
If you wish to proceed with us we ask for a 50% deposit for all trees and materials, if you want us to plant or install payment only after the work is done to your satisfaction!
Advice is free... Support is priceless.

Edibleculture – Education and pricing
We want visitors to Edibleculture to feel welcome, inspired, and educated so don’t expect salesmen trying to push through a sale. As plants people we would rather explain to our visitors the benefit you will get from a certain species or variety and whether it is suitable for you and your garden, rather than sell you something that isn’t suitable.
We are keen to work with permaculturists, forest gardeners and ‘no dig’ growers. We are an established business but we as growers ourselves want to learn and develop.
Through our work with the Abbey School students, we are providing an insight into how a horticultural business is run. We are keen to pass our knowledge on to the next generation. This will also be demonstrated through our display gardens and courses ranging in subjects such as fruit tree pruning, edible gardening and propagation.
