Bernwode Fruit Trees is tucked away in a quiet spot in rural Buckinghamshire, close to the Oxfordshire border and between Oxford and Aylesbury. It is set in our old hay meadows, on the edge of the ancient Royal forest of Bernwode.




  We collect, conserve, grow and sell traditional British fruit varieties. They are container grown, can be planted at any time of year and can be collected from the nursery or sent out by courier throughout the year. Please see opening times below.  
  Our range includes several hundred varieties covering apples, pears, plums, gages, cherries, vines, medlars, quinces, mulberries and some soft fruit. We also graft new trees from customers' own treasured old ones. Our trees are grafted on a range of rootstocks and customers can choose whichever is most suitable for the size of tree they want.  


The 84 page descriptive catalogue can be bought online, from this site, though there is no online ordering of trees, given the range and quickly changing availability. Our trees are rare and living things, which cannot be ordered up out of a warehouse. Customers are welcome to advice at the nursery or on the telephone.


Much of our work involves research and conservation of old varieties, ancient trees and orchards. If you have any knowledge of these, which you think would be of interest to us, please let us know. They are fast disappearing and time is pressing. Often, we advise private owners of trees and orchards on an informal basis, but we also undertake more formal consultancy on a fee-paying basis for larger and longer term projects. Please telephone for details.
