"Thanks for helping us find the plants we were looking for - and a few more that caught our eyes besides - amongst the great and varied selection on your nursery. We are very pleased with the plants and will doubtless be back for more. Good value all round.

- Mr Wheatley

I recently bought an Ilex Verticillata from you and just wanted to say I was very impressed with your service from the email update of stock availability to packaging of the plant and delivery. Thank you.

Medlar Trees

  • Medlars not only produce very unusual fruit of medieval origin but they are also beautiful flowering trees, the blossom is reminiscent of wild blush pink rose flowers.
  • The Autumn brings a perfect seasonal combination of russet brown gold fruits set amongst the foliage of strong red and gold autumnal hues.
  • The unusual fruit can be used in a number of ways to flavour jellies or used in desserts.
  • However - We think the best way to enjoy them is to blet them (leave until just over ripe), light a roaring log fire, bring some good Stilton cheese to room temperature, poor a glass of port and enjoy!
  • Easy to grow trees, forming a shrubby shaped tree to around 15 – 20ft

An Interesting Medlar of heritage interest being the Medlar planted by Elizabeth Garrett Anderson the first female doctor in the country and a good quality fruit to boot.

Medlar Flanders Giant


Strikingly large sized fruit of good flavour

Medlar Nottingham


Medium size pear-shaped fruit up to 25mm in diameter. It is considered to be the best-flavoured medlar, suitable for growing as a bush or a pyramid. Cropping is very heavy and plants will produce a good crop when only 3 years old.

Medlar Royal


Smaller fruits than Nottingham but with much better flavour


As its name suggests Medlar Westerveld originates from Holland.
