The perfect Patio Pear tree for growing in large pots or small gardens, where space is a premium.
Part of the world-leading Zaiger range of self-fertile and dwarf patio fruit trees, the dark green and juicy fruits of Garden Pearl will delight. It really is like an orchard pear tree in miniature, except for the size of crop and size of fruits!
Being very slow growing it will barely reach 1.2M (4ft) in 10 years or so. Self-fertile, so very easy to grow, it produces lovely pure white blossom displays in April, followed by luscious juicy pears in late Summer.
One of the easiest of all patio fruit trees to grow, it is definiteley one for the shortlist.
Good service. The package was despatched a little later than I expected, but I can't complain because I was kept informed throughout.
The tree arrived nicely packed. I was surprised by the size of it. It looks like a solid little fellow with a thick trunk and some nicely formed branches. As per the instructions, I let the roots soak overnight and potted it up in a 25ltr pot in the morning. I put horse manure at the very bottom (not convinced it's completely well-rotted and didn't want to risk it), a layer of topsoil from the garden over it, topped with multipurpose compost. I've been watering it regularly ever since, to not let the soil dry out. There is a lot of green growth at the very base of the tree, but I can see a flower bud trying to open up now on the tree, and some leaf buds as well. It's doing well so far, so I'm happy.
