    As per existing reviews good root system and looks healthy plant.

  2. Bare rooted Quince Tree 5

    Posted by John Williams on 8th Jan 2021

    Speedy delivery via courier. Healthy and strong looking sapling. Soaked root ball for 24 hours before planting in my orchard with lots of organic matter in the planting hole. Look forward to seeing new growth in Spring.

    very well packaged, reasonable delivery time; & has been planted - & hopefully will be ok - time will tell

  4. Very impressive quince tree 5

    Posted by Vian Roberts on 13th Dec 2020

    So far so good. Very impressive speed of delivery and a very impressive tree generally (very well packaged). Plenty of roots and branches, giving ample opportunity to train the tree to desired shape. Pruned branches gave every indication of a very healthy tree.
    The final test will of course be how well the tree looks in the Spring, though it's possible it may not be too happy with the torrential rain experienced since planting.
    A final point - the advice given on the website re. how best to implement planting was excellent.

  6. Huge quince bareroot tree 5

    Posted by guy mansford on 26th Nov 2020

    Arrived very well packaged with plenty of warning of arrival. Hard to unwrap but means well protected.
    Huge root system and well branching top growth with strong graft. Incredible value for money as always with Beechwood nursery.

  7. Good specimen 5

    Well packed and safely delivered. Looks to be a good specimen. planting and care advice would have been useful.

  8. Wait and See!! 4

    Ordering/Delivery/Packaging was fine, although clingfilm/gaffer tape possibly not the easiest to remove. Website instructions good. I cannot really express satisfaction until next year when the currently dormant tree hopefully produces a bumper crop of fruit and I can award the final star to my rating.

  9. quince tree 5

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Oct 2020

    The ordering process was simple and I was kept updated on its status. Delivery was straightforward and it arrived on time. The amount of plastic packaging was a bit over the top - it would have been better if recyclable packaging had been used. Can't wait to see how it does next year.

  10. Great plant 5
