What do we do?


Appletreeman in the Nursery Appletreeman specialises in apple trees that are either suitable for Scottish conditions, or those with a Scottish Heritage,  or have been selected by the many excellent Scottish head gardeners in the past. We also do nut bushes, soft fruits and fruiting shrubs. Every year we grow, graft and bud new and exciting varieties of pear, plum and apple in our Perthshire nursery atBlackhaugh Community Farm.  They are all grown sustainably and specially selected for their hardiness and suitability in a varied Scottish climate. Our trees can be bought bare-root in winter or as potted maiden trees throughout the year.

Appletreeman passes on his orchard expertise by running practical classes in things like planting, pruning, budding, and fruit identification. He also provides a consultancy and advice service to new or existing orchard owners or community groups.

Appletreeman also has a small research orchard of productive trees which provides a quantity of fruit for juicing and cider each year.


Blackhaugh Community Farm is located in Spittalfield, Perthshire. There are a number of land related businesses on the farm including Taybank Growers Co-operative which has a farm shop selling seasonal produce. A number of volunteers regularly help om the farm too.
