A Fruity Something for Father's Day

Capture the magic and romance of the famous novel trilogy Cider With Rosie by Laurie Lee and give Dad a cider apple tree. That way he can make and enjoy his own cider year after year.

If his tipple is wine too then what about a grape vine? Vitis Brandt carries grapes that ripen outdoors, and are wonderful for trailing around a pergola, under which he can drink his cider sitting in its shade during glorious summer months pondering the image of a rural idyll celebrated in the book.

Father's Day: For the Family Man

Want to give Dad something he'll treasure for years to come? How about a family apple tree? This tree has three varieties of apple, meaning it will produce superb eating apples all season and dad will think of you every time he picks one. This year, next year... and the year after.

Father's Day: For the Cider Drinker

Still on an apple theme but more alcoholic - why not get him a cider apple tree. Summer is coming, and while it will be a bit small for his scrumpy now, a full grown tree produces plenty enough for him to be refreshed in summer and mulled in winter! Choose which flavour you like and we will do the rest.

Father's Day: For the Wine Connoisseur

Or perhaps, as a fan of fine wines, he might fancy his own grape vine? Vitis Brandt carries grapes that ripen outdoors for juicing. And if Dad is not really a winemaker then he can grow it over his pergola and sit in its shade, while he drinks his cider, someone else's wine or just munches a Cox's Orange Pippin. And in autumn its leaves turn the colour of the wine of that he did (or didn't) make.

Father's Day: If all else fails...

If Dad does not want to make alcoholic beverages then he is clearly weary from his labours. In which case, what could be better than a spreading, shady tree for him to snatch forty winks under when no one is looking.

A Broadview Walnut is just the thing: Sensibly proportioned, but casting enough shade for a good sized sun lounger, and fast cropping, producing its first nuts within a couple of years. Imagine - dutiful children can sit at dad's feet and feed him fresh walnuts...
