Good place to buy fruit trees?

We are moving soon and the one thing H keeps wittering about is he will miss our apple tree!

Luckily the house we are moving to has a lovely big garden and space for a couple of trees....

Can anyone recommend a good place to get an apple tree and probably another fruit tree. I can't see any other apple trees around so I think it will need to be a self seeding one and preferably one with eating apples.

    Anyone? Am quite happy with an online retailer. Trees-online.co.uk were one of the links that came up that looked good.

    I bought mine from J Parkers and have also bought one from Gardening Direct. When I have looked before they both had quite a few varieties available, but neither have any at the moment, so maybe it isn't the best time to be planting them? Most of mine went in late autumn, but I can't remember if I ordered them earlier than that. This will be their 2nd summer and so far the apple trees look very promising, and the pear has a handful of fruits on it.
    When I had my loft converted back into a loft, the neighbours came around and scoffed, and called me retro.

    We don't have room for fruit trees, but I came across this site where they sell dozens of varieties and give all kinds of useful information. Good prices, too.

    I want to move to theory. Everything works in theory.

    I was expecting not to be able to plant them until the autumn which is fine as I doubt we will be in the new house until July/August.

    Thanks for the links
