MORE INFORMATION
Conference pears are a medium-sized fruit with an absolutely delicious flavour, and now you can grow your own. Once matured, these trees will produce great crops. They are self-fertile and will need no nearby pollinators. Please keep in mind that you may not see much in the way of fruiting for the first 3 - 5 years. This fantastic fruit tree is naturally compact and has been grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock and therefore will give you a shorter, easily controlled tree for planting in a large pot or container. Delivered as an established plant in a 4.5L pot, ready to plant out.

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

  • Plant patio fruit trees in containers 45-50cm (18-20in) in diameter, holding at least 30 litres of good quality compost such as John Innes No.3. Alternatively plant them in any well-drained soil in a sheltered sunny position.

Care Guide

  • Plant fruit trees at their original soil level, firm them into the ground and water well.
  • Fruit trees grown in pots will need watering and feeding more regularly than those planted in the ground.
  • To avoid the roots becoming pot bound, re-pot every year or alternate years after leaves have fallen in autumn.
  • Once in its final pot, a plant can be root-pruned every other year with 30 per cent of the compost refreshed. In between, replace the top couple of inches of compost.
  • A good mulch will help to retain water and therefore reduce the need to water as frequently, and will prevent weeds from competing
  • Your pear tree will not need drastic pruning, just remove any crossing or damaged branches. Any lower branches can be removed if you want to give you a clear trunk. Otherwise in subsequent seasons cut back any strongly growing branches by one third to promote the formation of fruiting spurs.


DELIVERY INFORMATION

Our experienced team at the nursery will always carefully package and send your plants nursery fresh in the perfect condition to thrive once you receive and plant them. Although most plants are extremely tough and will not be affected by all but the most extreme of weather conditions, we always avoid dispatching the most perishable plants if extreme frosts or heat is forecast. We also avoid dispatching orders over Bank Holiday weekends.

We send most of our orders via a fully tracked courier service with Yodel. We will send you a tracking link as soon as your order has been dispatched.
