DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR – The trees are supplied as healthy, dormant, bare root plants, delivered in specially designed protective packaging to ensure they arrive in perfect condition. Trees will be between 4-6' high, some with side branches developing, but please note that size can vary considerably due to the characteristics of different varieties. All come complete with comprehensive growing instructions. ROOTSTOCKS – Most fruit trees are grafted onto a closely related species 'rootstock' to predetermine the size and vigour of the tree and give the best possible yields. We have carefully chosen semi-dwarfing rootstocks (all of which are certified virus-free) to ensure that our trees grow, crop well and remain of manageable size in your garden. POLLINATION – Our cherries, apricots and quince are self-fertile and do not need a pollinator.

All Dobies products should reach you in perfect condition, just as they left us. If you are dissatisfied in any way with their condition on arrival, please let us know within 14 days. We are only liable for the cost of the goods as quoted on the website plus the cost of delivery if the goods are faulty.
