http://www.frankpmatthews.com

Rootstocks:

Quince A – moderate vigour, best all round choice; Quince C – 10% smaller

Pyrodwarf – slightly more vigorous than QA but just as early and productive.

Pyrus communis and Pyrus Kirchensaller are both very vigorous.

Maidens £18.00;  Bush & 2 year olds: £20.00; Cordon £22.00; Espaliers & Fans can be collected, or delivered locally by our van.Trained trees should be ordered as soon as possible as stocks are limited.

Pears will need a partner unless Self Fertile – SF or PSF. Trees in near neighbour’s gardens may be sufficient if not too far away. Family trees will have varieties that cross pollinate each other.

Pollination partners should share the same Po. period, or be in an adjacent period. E.g. A Po.3 pear will need a Po. 3 partner ideally, but should be ok with a Po.2 or a Po. 4
