Apricots, Peaches and Nectarines

Apricots, Peaches and Nectarines


Apricots, Peaches and Nectarines are often mistakenly considered tender. They are actually a very hardy plant that can be grown as a free standing tree and all varieties are self fertile. Their early flowering habit requires some caution and good air drainage is important to their fruiting potential in an open situation. If this is not possible, then growing on walls will enable easy protection from spring frosts. Peaches and Nectarines will suffer from Peach leaf curl in the spring if not protected from the spring rain or sprayed with fungicide.

We act as exclusive agents for Gräb Nursery in Germany. Their specialist approach produces the finest quality trees on the most suitable of nursery soils to the very highest specification. They also offer through our portfolio the most recent varieties from their own breeding programme and the progeny of other stone fruit breeding programmes throughout the world.
