  4. Blueberry Pink Lemonade" Or "Pinkberry"

     A pink blueberry!

    This unique new variety provides year-round colour and interest in the garden - not to mention deliciously sweet fruit with a lovely firm texture. The pink-white, bell shaped flowers provide plenty of spring interest, followed by pale green fruits in summer, which quickly become dappled with pale pink and finally ripen to a deep glossy pink colour. As the autumn approaches, the leaves turn bright orange, fading to deep red, before falling to reveal an attractive framework of dusky red-brown winter branches.

     As with all blueberry bushes, 'Pinkberry' is self-fertile but will produce a bigger crop if a second blueberry plant is present as a pollinator. Height and spread: 150cm (59").

    Plant in peaty ericaceous soil

    They're very vigorous, so growth should be limited by restricting the roots to a large container (which will also encourage fruit formation).

    Alternatively they can easily be trained on the wall and pruned to fit the required space. Will cover a wall 10ft x 10ft. or trim smaller

  7. Fig Ice Crystal

    Ficus carica 'Ice Crystal'  is an ideal plant for growing against a sunny wall or fence!

     If you wish to try and encourage fruiting, Ficus carica 'Ice Crystal' should be planted with a restricted root run outdoors. This can be achieved by either planting it in a large container, or digging quantities of gravel, stone, old terracotta pots, etc into the planting site. If planted into a nutrient rich soil, fig trees will usually produce huge amounts of new growth, lush leaves and very little fruit.

  8. Mini Patio Pear Tree - Bonne Louise De Jersey - AKA Bonne Louise D'Avranches

    Mini Patio Pear Tree - Bonne Louise De Jersey - AKA Bonne Louise D'Avranches A truly outstanding dessert pear. A ripe Louise Bonne is large, rather chunky and a yellowish green with a veneer of russet. The flesh melts in your mouth - and has none of the grainy texture associated with some pears. It is white with a tinge of pink, wonderfully juicy and sweet and acid at the same time with a hint of what some describe as rosewater and others liken to muscat. Whichever it is, the juice of a Louise Bonne of Jersey runs down your chin like no other pear we know. In form this is an upright tree that is a good choice in for cooler areas since its blossom - which is extremely beautiful is more resistant to frost than most. Pick your pears in late September and they will store well until after Christmas although Louise Bonne is at its best in October and November. It received the RHS Award of Merit 2003. Decorative pot not included In so far as pears ever are, Louise Bonne of Jersey is self-fertile. However she is incompatible with and so can neither pollinate or be pollinated by Williams bon Chretien. Please remember that self-fertile fruit trees generally crop better with a pollinator and in this regard Louise Bonne of Jersey is no exception.

  9. Plum Opal - Self Fertile Patio Plum

    Opal plums are deliciously sweet, bite-sized dessert plums with a great colour range, from sunshine yellow to deep purple, often on one fruit. They have pale yellow flesh with a signature Greengage flavour. These are really early cropping plum trees and in a good year you can look forward to the first fruit being ready at the end of July - because they are so early.

    Opal plums mature quite fast and they also reward being planted in a south facing spot - trained against a south facing wall is ideal. The mature size is about 2-3m x 2- 3m (6-9ft x 6-9ft)

    Planting distance should be at least 3m (9ft apart)

  10. Prunus p. 'Saturn' - Dwarf Patio Peach

    Prunus p. 'Saturn' - Dwarf Patio Peach This is an unusual flat peach which looks a bit like a doughnut, and is occasionally available in supermarkets. Saturn is a white-fleshed peach and has the characteristic delicate flavour of white-fleshed varieties. Though the flat donut shape of this peach may appear quite strange, don't let this put you off, because the flavour is excellent. An unexpected benefit of the flat shape is that Saturn is easier to eat than normal peaches, more like eating a cookie!
