Product Description

‘Conference’ Pear produces a large crop of fruit with clear white flesh that are ready to pick each September. The long, tapering fruits are packed with an irresistible sweetness and lip-smacking juice that will drip from your chin when you bite into one that is perfectly ripe!

Because of its outstanding flavour, it remains the most popular pear grown in Britain by a long measure, both in commercial orchards and home gardens. It is ideal for you to grow because it is very heavy cropping and when picked unripe it’s great for keeping for 2 or more months.

'Conference' is largely self-fertile, so you’ll always get a great crop of the most delicious pears, and it’ll won’t grow too large, as it is supplied grafted onto dwarfing Quince rootstock.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence and enjoy a wonderful crop.

Supplied as a bare root dormant tree 1.2m tall, to plant straight out from November to May, and reaching a height and spread of 2.5m (8ft).

Item 300003 supplied as:
Supplied as a 1.2m tall bare root tree.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Place your tree in a sunny positions for the best crops.

Care Guide

  • Soak the bare root for several hours or overnight.
  • Select an appropriate spot for your plants, making sure that you give them enough space to grow to their full size.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the roots, forking over the bottom to loosen the soil, and add some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone (wash your hands afterwards!).
  • Aim to plant at the same depth as the soil mark on the trunk.
  • Holding the tree or plant upright in position with one hand, slowly backfill the hole with soil, and gently shake the plant, so the soil falls back around the roots.
  • Use your heel to compact the soil around the plant to ensure good contact around the roots.
    If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy - our Premium Professional Compost mix is particularly good - and some sand or grit to aid drainage.
  • You are again aiming to plant to the depth of the soil mark.
  • Firm down as you fill and press down hard with your heel when the pot is full.
  • Add a tree stake and ties
  • Water the plants weekly - especially in dry weather - for the first 8 weeks or so.
  • When the soil and air warm up from late March onwards, you should see the plant burst into life.Do not allow plants to dry out in the first four months after planting.
  • Once established for one season, they will become much more tolerant to a lack of water, as the root system develops.
  • 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 achieve a clear trunk. Otherwise, in subsequent seasons cut back any strongly growing branches by one third to promote the formation of fruiting spurs.

Order was delivered to the wrong address, neighbour did not know when the parcel had been delivered, I received it 7 days late. Box was damaged, pots were smashed. Time will tell if any survive. Plants were delivered together with a leaflet offering the exact same products for half the price I had paid!! Won't be buying from them again.
Product:
As previously stated plants delivered to wrong address and arrived 7 days late. Packaging was damaged and so were the plant pots contained therein. Tree was delivered with leaflet offering this product for £5.00 less than I had paid - not very happy.
