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.
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.
The columnar pear grows quite slowly taking up little space. Pyrus communis 'Conference' is a good self-pollinator - which makes it so easy. You can pick the pears in August and September, depending on the weather. You can eat the pears immediately or store them for some time in a cool place.
