Ordering & Dispatch

We are happy to receive orders by phone, email or in the post. Orders can be emailed to tastytrees@gmail.com or call us on 09 408 5443. You can also print and use our Order Form (pdf) and post to the address here.

When sending orders by email please provide us with your list of choices, a contact phone number, an address for the courier and your rootstock preference (if you have one).

As we are a small nursery aiming to preserve a diversity of apple varieties, we can only supply small numbers of any one cultivar per order. It is therefore advisable to add some back-up choices to your order. Otherwise, please indicate if you are happy to leave this choice to us. We will try to provide something similar and compatible with your order. Feel free to ring us to discuss your requirements.

Trees are sent by courier from mid-July until early September. This is always dependent on weather conditions, however. For example conditions that mean soils are too wet to lift, or temperatures not cold enough for dormancy etc. Trees are sent bare-rooted, wrapped in damp sawdust and should be bedded into something moist or planted out on delivery.

We take extra care with our packaging of trees so that they reach you in good order. Tree are packed in damp sawdust (to keep roots moist) and secured in plastic sacks with cardboard cases protecting the trunks.
