Product Information

Perfect for small spaces or patio pots, this pear tree will perform just as well as any other, but in an incredibly compact form!

‘Decora’ has been grown to have an upright, columnar form and almost no branches, achieved by breeding instead of pruning so that the tree will maintain its shape without the need for skilled pruning or training. The delicious fruit is firm and juicy and ready to pick from September.

Self-fertile and growing to just 2m in height after 5 years, 'Decora' is so easy to harvest as the fruit naturally occurs on small spurs close to the main stem instead of on branches. As well as being a productive fruit tree, it also makes an ideal, eye-catching specimen when grown in a large patio pot where you can really appreciate the lovely spring blossom followed by a healthy crop of tasty pears.

Supplied as a bare root tree, ready to plant and reaching 2m after 5 years.

Top Tips

  • Keep well-watered, and if growing in a pot, use a good quality, soil-based compost.

Care Information

  • On receipt, soak the roots in water for at least two hours (overnight is better). If you can't plant straight away, they should be fine for up to a week if left in a cool, dark, frost-free place - keep the bag around the roots with some water inside.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the roots, forking over the bottom to loosen the soil, and add some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone (wash your hands afterwards!).
  • Aim to plant at the same depth as the soil mark on the trunk.
  • Holding the tree or plant upright in position with one hand, slowly backfill the hole with soil, and gently shake the plant, so the soil falls back around the roots.
  • Use your heel to compact the soil around the plant to ensure good contact around the roots.
    If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • No special pruning is required, but If side branches form, remove them in winter.
