Hardiness level Green
Pretty spring flowers, luscious autumn fruit and a gorgeous espaliered shape throughout the year.
Best positioned in sun to partial shade, in most fertile well drained soils. Conference is a partially self-fertile pear, though cropping is improved with an additional pollinator.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
