Terrace Fruits is dedicated to bringing the joy and pleasure of growing your own fruit in whatever size garden or window box you have. Between Will, Liz, Pete and our nursery staff, we are very well qualified to do just that!
Will has been grafting and raising fruit trees for over 50 years and has budded or grafted over two million trees. That’s a lot! Liz has spent most of the last 15 years “tying up” most of those buds and grafts, which in truth hasn’t been so much different from her previous career as a District Nurse bandaging up cut fingers! Then along came Pete, who grows vegetables for a living as well as olives and figs and apricots and oranges and lemons.... and just about every other fruit you never thought would grow in the UK.
Between them they have a passion to introduce you to the Wonderful World of Fruit Growing. To fruits you know and love and to fruits that you never dreamt of growing.
There has never been a more important time to plant a tree. Whilst an oak tree is wonderful, a tree that repays you with delicious fruit and also carries no “food miles”, plastic packaging and is packed full of goodness because it has just been picked from your garden, must be a better choice.
We don’t grow all of our trees on our nurseries but work with other nurserywomen and men who are true experts in certain fruits to ensure that we only sell the very best selections to our customers. We can trace every one of our trees that we sell right back to the row in the nursery it was grown on and in nearly all cases, we can tell you the name of the horticulturist who grafted it, pruned it, nurtured it and loved it.
Our mission is to leave this world a better place by instilling in our customers a love of growing fruit, and if we do that, then we will most definitely have succeeded.
