Fruit and Ornamental Trees Introduced by Frank P Matthews
Over the years we have helped to introduce many special varieties of trees to the garden centre market.
Some of these have come from our own breeding programmes, others have arisen through our close partnerships with individual breeders, plant enthusiasts and specialist nurseries. Some have remained exclusive to us whilst others are now grown by other nurseries too. Occasionally a chance find by a member of the public can produce a variety worth propagating, other varieties have been developed through years of sophisticated breeding programmes.
The list below is not exhaustive but provides a broad picture of the excellent range of trees we have recognised as worth promoting and then introduced to the gardening public.
