Forum home Plants


Hi there,

For anyone that can help I am looking for someone or a company that can grow flowers and small fruit trees for me. 

I have about 6 different trees I would like growing:

Chilean Guava Trees

Stella sweet cherry tree

 Mayer Lemon Tree

Dwarf avocado plant 

Coffee Arabica

Bonsai Chili Plants

I am not an expert in growing plants in any sort of way this is why im looking for a specific person who can help or a company that can grow these trees for me. If anyone can point me in the right direction or can help me out in anyway it would be greatly appreciated. 




  • Hi James,

    Please can you tell us where you live?

    These sound a bit tender for the trees and shrubs  normally grown here in Britain./UK

  • Hi there, 

    Thanks for the quick reply :)

    I live in West Yorkshire, I know this and they are more for people to keep them indoor with the possibility of taking them outside in the summer seasons.



  • OK.

    Enter the latin name for each plant. Find RHS web site.

    On the screen is a search box .....where you can search for suppliers. Find a plant.

    Eg Chlilean Ugni molinae.

    This is what the screen looks like. 

    There will be growers who can supply them ..but you may not get all on your list from one grower.

    To order by mail order could prove a very expensive option.

    Why not visit a really good garden centre near you to see what they have.

    You may get the lemon.

    Larch Cottage near Penrith is a huge grower/nursery...many plants they have are unusual rare..

    Always worth a visit.

  • Using the RHS web site to search your Ugni molinae..... it comes up with Mucklestone nursery as being nearest to West Yorkshire.

    2. Search for Prunus avium Stella.

    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks for the help :) 

    It would be easier to find one supplier bit if it isnt possible I will have to find many. 

    Thanks again


  • 4. Persea americana Wurtz is a small one...Avocado.

    But I cannot imagine that you would ever get fruit in UK unless you have a huge heated greenhouse.

    Not sure anyone would sell it in UK.

    Maybe you should start your gardening with easy to grow plants for a North of England spot, see how they get on..... and then progress to more exotic stuff.

    See my other posts above.
