Video: Planting and pruning a cordon fruit tree
How to plant a cordon fruit tree, and how to prune it as it grows
Cordon fruit trees are usually apples and pears, as stoned fruit such as plum and cherry don't develop the short fruiting spurs that cordon shapes need.
The plants in this video are from our fruit trees for sale.
Fruit trees are available as bareroot plants from November through to March, and many are also available pot-grown for most of the year.
All of our fruit trees are guaranteed for one year.
