The natural conditions in Slovenia allow the cultivation of various fruits which is why garden owners increasingly decide to plant fruit trees. Climate change and the changing fruit farming trends pose problems to nursery farmers and those trading in seedlings as they often do not know how many nursery plants to order so as to avoid ending up with a surplus at the end of the season or running out of them before the season ends. The purpose of my degree thesis is to determine which fruit species, varieties and saplings were most popular and were purchased in the largest quantities from a big garden centre in Ljubljana in autumn 2015 and 2016. The data on the number of saplings sold was obtained from the yearly inventory carried out in the garden centre. In the aforementioned period, the sale of apple, persimmon, kiwi, pear, cherry, apricot, peach and plum trees was remarkably higher than that of other fruits. Compared to kiwi and persimmon saplings, twice as many apple plants were sold. Topaz, the scab-resistant variety, was the most popular of apple trees. During both seasons together, fewer than 10 plants of mulberry, sorb apple, walnut, nectarine, fig, guava, Asian pear, pecan, jujube, feijoa were sold.
