Pear - Conference (Pyrus communis) is a compact, deciduous, fruiting tree with strong, upright branches and oval, green leaves. Fragrant, small white flowers are blooming in spring and are followed by tasty, juicy, sweet, pale green with brown patches pears in autumn. The fruit is pyriform if cross-pollinated and banana-shaped if self-pollinated. Pear – Beth grows best in neutral, moist, well-drained soil, in full sun, but can adapt to various types of soils, except too dump and rocky. It can withstand frost, but needs to be sheltered from harsh winds. Late frosts may damage flower buds. Generally, pest-free. Attractive to butterflies and birds. Self-pollinated fruit is seedless. Pear - Conference is one of the most well-known dessert pears. This variety brings reliable, regular, and abundant crop of juicy fruit of good quality and sweet flavour. It is suitable for all training forms. Great for informal, cottage, and wildlife gardens. Perfect as a specimen plant.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
