Apricot & peach trees – more info

Apricot and peach trees offer beautiful blossoms in the spring as well as delicious, homegrown fruit in the summer. These trees are relatively easy to care for and thrive in the UK, provided you keep them in the right location. Pruning in late winter helps maintain their shape and encourages healthy growth. For more information, read our article on how to plant fruit trees and see answers to some of the most frequently asked questions below.

Are apricot trees easy to grow?

Apricot trees are relatively easy to grow, provided they are planted in a sunny, sheltered location with rich, fertile, well-drained soil. They require regular watering, particularly during dry spells, and benefit from annual pruning to promote healthy growth and fruit production.

Which apricot trees are self-pollinating?

‘Flavorcot’ is self-fertile. It’s a late-flowering tree that has been selectively bred for the UK climate, delivering reliable crops that ripen in late July and August.

Which peach tree is best for growing in the UK?

The 'Peregrine' peach tree is one of the best choices for growing in the UK. It is well-suited to the UK climate and produces large, juicy peaches with excellent flavour. Another good option is the ‘Avalon Pride' peach tree, strongly resistant to leaf curl disease.
