Fruit Bushes and Plants

We have a range of top quality fruit bushes for sale including blueberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants,  summer raspeberries, autumn raspberries and apple trees.
Prices for bushes bought at the farm are much cheaper than in the online shop due to there being no packaging / delivery cost.
Fruit bushes can be bought at the farm (see Opening times or call 07798 743877 to arrange a convenient time to visit. There is someone on site every day even when the gates are closed) or there is free delivery within the Purbeck area (at cost charges will apply for deliveries further afield). To arrange delivery Contact Us. Alternatively you can buy online by clicking here Online Farm Shop
 
All the varieties we produce are high quality commercial varieties with outstanding yield, flavour and disease resistance characteristics. Some of these varieities are often not available through the mainstream garden centres and nurseries. At Lenctenbury Farm we grow fruit for sale as well as produce the plants for sale and we use the same varieties in the field as we have available for sale.
Pruning training is available to anyone buying a plant from us - or indeed to anyone not buying a plant but interested in how to properly prune fruit bushes. For more details clink on the folowing link Pruning Courses

Blueberry Bushes
 
4 litre potted plants are just coming into fruit (£10)
2 litre potted plants (£7.50

Clearance blueberry bushes in 10 litre pots (£5)
 
Blueberries are easy to grow and look after if you get the two key things right. First you must plant the bush in acidic soil (pH 4.5 - 5.0 is optimum) or in ericaceous compost in a pot. Secondly you must prune the bush every year. If you get these things right and feed a fertiliser during April-June then you can expect fruit every year for between 20 and 40 years. All plant buyers will receive a guide on how to plant, prune and care for your bush.
 
 
 
The varieties available are:
Bluecrop:  The most widely planted variety in the world and in our experience the most reliable variety. Berries are medium-large with good flavour. Bluecrop has a long fruiting season from late July to end of August.
 
Duke:  An early ripening variety which fruits during July. The fruits are large with a more mild flavour than the other varieties.
 
Chandler:  Chandler produces the largest berries of all and fruits during August. The flavour is also good.

Herbert: (10L clearance plants) An older variety but the fruit quality is very high. Ripens in August.

Blackcurrant Bushes
 
The bushes we produce are strong 2 and 3 year old bushes. 
The varieties available are:
Ben Sarek: A new, compact variety perfect for garden culture. Ben Sarek is tolerant of frost and cold, and it forms a small, compact bush that rarely exceeds 3' in height and should he planted closer together to give the best results. A spacing of 3' apart would be ideal, or even if grown as a hedge. The fruits are very large and yields are high. The flavour is excellent and ideal for all normal uses. Frost resistant. Mildew resistant, excellent flavour. High quality, large fruits and high cropping potential that.
  

Ben Lomond is vigorous variety with high levels of disease resistance, including powdery mildew and rust. The individual berries are very large with a high juice content and plenty of flavour. They ripen very evenly on the string and keep well in perfect condition for some time on the bush. Yields are very high with the crop produced on a vigorous but upright bush.

Raspberry Canes
 
We have summer fruiting and autumn fruiting varieties and as with our other fruit we only stock high quality varieties that we use ourselves for commercial production.
 
 
 
Summer fruiting: Glen Ample produces masses of large, tasty, deep red raspberries from July to August. The fruit freeze well so any excess can be used later. They also make excellent jam and jellies, as well being delicious fresh fruit for desserts. The canes are vigorous and spine-free, making picking the fruit trouble-free. Glen Ample is available at the farm and by local delivery as potted long canes (4ft long minimum)that will fruit in their first year. There are 2 canes per pot and each pot is priced at £3.99
 
Autumn fruiting: Polka has replaced Autumn Bliss as the autumn fruiting variety of choice for commercial raspbery growers. This is because of high, early yields and high quality berries. Polka is available at the farm and by local delivery as potted cane stumps that will fruit this year. There are 2 canes per pot and each pot is priced at £3.99
