This zone which also includes the Southern Uplands is the least suitable area for growing tree fruit in the UK. With a few exceptions Tiree in the Inner Hebrides for example much of this area has well under 1, hours of sunlight per year, and gets too much wind and rain. However with careful choice of site, varieties, and suitable defensive measures, you can be successful in growing fruit trees here. We have corresponded with fruit tree enthusiasts in this region and can offer some advice if necessary.
Our variety listings indicate which fruit varieties may be suitable, but please note that this does not mean they will grow and produce fruit half-way up a mountain fully exposed to the Atlantic storms. We have created a collection of fruit trees for north west Scotland which may give you some inspiration. It also includes Cornwall and some parts of Devon, where rainfall and wind are greater than the rest of the southern UK.
The climate of Cornwall is surprisingly difficult for fruit trees, which is why well-adapted regional varieties such as Cornish Gilliflower remain popular. Growing fruit trees in this region is a little more of a challenge than in Zone 3 - but rest assured, still relatively straightforward. Some parts of this region are too high up, and with the altitude comes colder, wetter and windier weather - which fruit trees do not like.
For the rest of this region sunshine levels are a bit less than southern England, and rainfall a bit higher - but in a garden or small orchard situation it is usually possible to offset these difficulties. Most apple and plum varieties will grow perfectly well here, but it helps to pay more attention to the choice of variety than is necessary in southern England. Finding a site with a sunny aspect also helps, as does creating your own micro-climate by growing fruit trees as espaliers and fans on a south-facing wall.
Fruits such as peaches, nectarines, and apricots, which prefer a continental climate, will probably not do very well, although growing trees in pots on a warm patio might be successful in a good year. It is worth noting that this area includes one of the best places in the world for growing Damson fruit trees - the Lyth valley to the east of the Lake District.
Northern Ireland also has a long tradition of tree fruit production, notably of Bramley apples. This is the area south of a line roughly from Exeter to Flamborough on the Yorkshire coast. From the point of view of growing fruit trees, this region has the best combination of low-rainfall and good levels of sunlight more than hours per year throughout the year, and is well-suited to growing fruit trees in small-scale orchards and gardens.
Within this zone, the south coast and Kent have an ideal climate for most tree fruits. Almost all apples, pears, plums and cherries can be grown successfully here, and fruits requiring hotter continental climates such as apricots, peaches, and nectarines are also possible given care over their situation.
