About Ian Sturrock & Sons

We have been succesfully growing rare organic Welsh fruit trees in North Wales for the last 30 years.

After many years of searching, researching and trials, we have developed a collection of fruit trees that will succeed in our unique location.

We have varieties of Apple, Pear, Plum and Damson fruit trees from all over Wales, all of which are unique and very rare.

Our organic fruit trees are disease resistant (no need to spray), ripen well despite our cool and cloudy summers and bear fruit that doesn’t blow off the trees during autumn gales.

Take a look at our new Online Shop at some of the trees we offer. We accept all payments through Paypal via an online shopping cart: Safe, Secure and Easy!

In 1998 we discovered the Bardsey Island Apple which led to a massive resurgence of interest in old, almost extinct Welsh Varieties.

These tough, disease resistant fruit trees are now being planted throughout Wales, the UK & Europe, even as far as the US and New Zealand!

Why not plant a special fruit tree in your garden and be part of the growing popularity of rare fruit trees.

 When you plant a fruit tree, remember that it will almost certainly outlive you. Take your time, choose wisely. Let your kids and their kids enjoy unique, tasty and unsprayed fruit.

 We plant too few trees in our lives

SITE SELECTION

When planting and tending your tree please bear in mind the following:Apple trees prefer a deep loamy, well-drained, slightly acid soil preferably on a south-facing slope.

It would be best to give the tree as good a soil and site as possible.Allow plenty of air movement around and through the tree.

A warm airy site will help reduce the likelihood of scab forming on the fruit and canker from causing dieback of the wood.Both these fungi need humidity to flourish.

Avoid frost pockets when choosing your site.

Very few apple varieties are self-fertile; they need another different variety that flowers at the same time to cross-pollinate.

Obviously you have more chance of success if there are several potential pollinators nearby.

 Root Stocks

All fruit trees aree grafted onto rootstocks.

The rootstocks determine tree size.

Bigger trees are more robust and produce more fruit, but take up more space. Always choose a bigger rootstock if you need extra anchorage, or your soil is poor (very wet, dry or rocky).

Small trees can’t compete with grass & weeds.
