Apricot Trees

If you are going to plant a tree or bush, then it is going to be there for many years. It's well worth spending some time looking at the different varieties and going for one that will be productive and providing you with a good crop in years to come.

Apricots are not an easy plant outside of the south east in the UK and even there will require frost protection but if you have the room on a south facing wall then you can get a wonderful crop.

For advice on growing apricots see our Grow Your Own Apricots guide.
