Purchased as part of a 3 for 2 promotion, visited local store to see robust pot grown trees but they only had two of the three in stock so ordered online.
Delivery was very quick, before courier updated online tracking, excellent as I work from home (no order for collection available).
Unfortunately the trees are bare root and although should be better in the long run, they appear less robust (smaller) and buds appear to have emerged then dried up (uncertain how long they have been out of the ground).
I have planted trees and will keep my fingers crossed, but it will be too late to complain if they do not perform.
If I wanted bare root I would use a specialist supplier, will not order trees/plants online from Homebase again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Trevor Lockyer very small
I was disappointed in the age of the tree, it was very small. I thought you get very little for your money but I went ahead and planted it. I was even more disappointed when a few days later I went to a local supermarket and saw the same variety for half the price and it was one and a half times as big. I hope I have learn my lesson and will not buy pkants online again.
