A small graceful specimen tree grown for its habit, foliage and edible fruit. Elegantly weeping branches with small 5 petalled creamy-white flowers opening as lance shaped silvery grey leaves emerge in mid-spring. Fruit is small and brown and preferred more by birds and wildlife than humans. Weed, mulch and compost in spring while young.
Fully hardy and likes sun and a well-drained soil. Pears are quite tolerant of both drought and moisture and can also be planted in cold areas. They are also tolerant of smoke pollution so are suitable for urban areas. Height in Maturity approx 6m x 4m / 20ft x 14ft.
Special features: Silvery leaves and weeping branches

The Pear’s gender is feminine and its planet is Venus. The fruit is often used in love spells. Pear wood was said to make fine magical wands and witches once danced beneath Pear trees.
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.

A beautiful tree which is now mature. My gardener has recently retired so I’m curious how best to prune & when?
You could trim back the branches now by about 6-9 inches.
Normally the best time to prune is November, when you can see the shape you would like it to be
Hope this helps and do call us on 01584 878878 if you need to discuss further.
Please can you tell me if these are delivered as a standard/half standard and what the clearance is of the stem? Also, approximate trunk girth please? I’m looking to buy two, the more mature the better, within reason of course 🙂
The clear stem is about 1.20 metres, they are still young trees with a girth of about 6-8cm max.
Hope this helps
