Planting and flowering details
Harvesting Details
  • Planting
  • Plant Pyrus communis in a large hole in good, loose, nutritious soil. Plant the root ball at the correct depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil, press firmly and water immediately after planting. This columnar pear grows best in a sunny area.
    Columnar Pear tree in a pot
    The columnar pear grows well in a large flower pot or planter. The tree itself takes up little space but provides great benefits. Place the pear tree in a sheltered, sunny area. You can create a 'mini-orchard' by planting the Pear Tree, Dwarf Cherry, Peach, Cherry, Apple and Apricot in pots and placing them together on your patio or decking.

  • Care
  • Pyrus communis Conference is an easy to grow fruit tree. Are you growing your columnar pear in a pot or planter? Regularly water the pear tree, making sure that the roots never dry out. It is recommended that you feed with some mixed organic fertiliser in early spring. Apply a mulch of compost around the base of the tree.
    Columnnar Pear pruning
    This pear tree rarely forms side branches, therefore, pruning isn't necessary. Is the columnar pear growing too high? If so, you can trim the top of it. Completely remove dead branches. Do not prune when there are signs of frosts. Is there still fruit formation after the flowering period? If so remove them and keep only two pears per bunch, removing any excess pears.
