Growing fruit trees isn’t difficult and is incredibly rewarding! Many fruit trees are self-pollinating, such as apricot and peach and some plum trees, which means that they fertilize themselves. However, apple trees do not. They need another variety of apple tree planted close by so that they can pollinate each other, come by Horticentre where our experts can help you finding the right apple and other fruit trees for you garden!

Horticentres favourite fruit trees near Huddersfield
Aside from the smaller berry kinds, fruit trees like apple trees, citrus trees and cherry trees are very popular. This is because these trees are easily planted and don’t need much care. Make sure to plant your fruit trees during autumn or winter, before it starts to freeze. Apple trees are great pot trees and therefore make for the perfect fruit tree for smaller gardens. Citrus trees are best put in a sunny spot, and when looking for an aesthetically pleasing solution, opt for a cherry tree, as they produce their world-famous blossoms before they yield their delicious fruits.
Best fruit trees to grow in UK
Caring for your fruit trees usually doesn’t take much time, but does need to be done properly in order to guarantee a good harvest. When to plant fruit trees in the UK? First of all, plant your trees at the end of the year and soak the roots. This helps the soil enclose the roots, which will protect them against upcoming low temperatures. Dig a hole in the ground that is not to deep for the roots but that does give them the horizontal space they need. Finally, always check if your fruit tree is self-fertile or not. If it isn’t, fruit production will require two trees of the same kind in proximity to eachother, as some sort of pollination is needed.
