Download our bareroot fruit availability list for 20/21
Bareroot tree situation – Normally (?) we would have all our trees in to distribute to customers or to purchase in shop by this time. We sadly expect trees to on average be lifted later due to climate collapse but this year we have the added issue of COVID making work slower and less staff (about 2/3 less) on the ground due to foreign workers not wanting to work here. We expect trees to be here before the end of Jan.. trees are fine to be planted in to mid March.

Edibleculture – How and why plastic Free?
At Edibleculture we carefully use plastic to grow our plants but we do not let it leave our business. We internally recycle, selling to customers in various innovative ways including our own POSIpot transportation sleeves. We have had a great deal of interest in what we do, bluntly, we are attempting to put the environment before profit. We want to prove that you can run a viable business without polluting, de-valuing staff or wasting resources.
We will keep experimenting and challenging standard horticultural practice around plastic, peat and pesticide use.
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.
