JFT Nurseries are pleased to announce the release of a POTTED fruit tree range, meaning the quality you have come to expect from our bare rooted trees is now available in pots. Available all year round, our potted range is based on our new dwarfing varieties along with traditional favourites. Further information is available by contacting our friendly office staff.
Here at JFT Nurseries, in association with Plantnet (a company formed to introduce new varieties for the home gardener), we are striving to keep in touch with the changing demands for what is required in fruit varieties for the home garden.
Exciting things are now eventuating in Australia, the future will see new dwarfing rootstocks for all stone fruits, (Apricots, Cherries, Nectarines, Peaches and Plums) and pome fruits, (Apples and Pears). These rootstocks, sourced from all over the world, will start becoming available in the next few years. Unlike what is available today, these rootstocks perform much better and produce better structured and smaller trees. Home gardeners will be able to grow most of their fruit in large containers on balconies and patios, or have mini orchards in their smaller backyards, making them easier to manage when spraying for pests and diseases, and pruning will be more to shape rather than seasonal heavy pruning. At present we have a range of TRUE DWARFING Fruit Trees available – Dwarf Almond, Dwarf Apples ‘Pinkabelle’ and ‘Leprechaun’ and Super Dwarf Apples in a range of varieties, Dwarf Apricots, Dwarf Cherries, Dwarf Nectarines, Dwarf Peaches and Dwarf Plums.
