Groves Tree Festival

Now that Autumn is upon us we are embracing this magical season with our Tree Festival from Saturday 7th October until Friday 13th October.

  • Come and find out our top tips for planting trees and keeping them healthy, plus find out what you can plant underneath for a beautiful display in your garden
  • Enjoy some of the fantastic local products that we stock such as Elwell apples & pears, Elwell Apple Juice, Issac cider and Cherry tree Jams & chutneys
  • To celebrate the festival we have the special offer of 25% off all of our espalier apple trees. This offer runs from Saturday 7th October until midnight on Friday 13th October.

We're starting the festival off in style with our Fruit Tree Pruning workshops on Saturday 7th or Sunday 8th October at 3pm at Groves in Bridport. Do you know that your Fruit trees need pruning but don’t know what you’re doing? Come along to one of our free workshops and speak to our head plantsman Steve Ward who will talk you through when and how to prune them. No need to book, just come along on the day.

If you're in the mood for some new foliage in the garden come and browse our fantastic selection of Ornamental trees - we have trees for small gardens, fantastic autumn colour, beautiful winter barks, trees to help wildlife, weeping trees, evergreen trees.  Plus if space is tight (or you like to be able to take your garden with you!) you'll be able to find out more about how to keep your trees in a container.

Fruit trees are a brilliant addition to a garden, for you as well as for wildlife. Come and wander through our extensive range of Apples, Pears, Plums, Gages, Damsons, Cherries, Apricots, Nectarines, Peaches, Quince trees as well as Walnuts & Cobnuts. We have them trained as Espaliers, Step overs, Columns and Fans so you can fit them into any space!

Ivy House Kitchen will also be celebrating the wonderful fruits that trees provide us with some delicious treats.  So pop down, have a chat to our plants team and browse our wonderful selection of trees, then finish up in the Ivy House for some tasty refreshments.  Easy as one, two, tree.
