Fruit Trees & Small Fruits

Drummers carries fruit trees, fruiting shrubs, and also small fruits like grapes, gooseberries, and honeyberries. Find our best selection in spring as fruits go fast! Our trees and shrubs go on display around April 15 until late October, weather permitting.

FOR THOSE THAT LIKE TO PLAN AHEAD!

During the off season you may shop and order from one of our plant vendors, Monrovia Nurseries — You’ll be purchasing the plant from Monrovia and choose to have it delivered to Drummers free of charge.

You can also email brad@drummersgardencenter.com and order bare root fruit trees anytime before the beginning of March.  Bare root trees arrive in April before any other potted plant!

FRUIT INFO AND RESOURCES

Read our Guides to Planting and Care page before you plant in your landscape to keep your plants healthy and happy! For a successful production of fruit, especially on trees, maintenance against insects and disease, as well as pruning each year during the late winter/early spring before new growth, is important. Each fruit tree or shrub may have different needs so be sure to research your particular plant for optimal long-term results!
