Malus 'Royalty'

NEW! This ornamental crab apple is an excellent choice if you are looking for darker tones in your garden. The large pink-red flowers contrast beautifully against the glossy, dark purple leaves. The foliage retains its colour throughout the summer months before turning crimson-red in the autumn, revealing the small dark red/purple fruits which hang on the branches for several more weeks.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Pollination: Self-fertile. Universal Pollinator.


Height x spread in 10 years: up to 4m (13ft).


Available for delivery: late November - late April.


 

Crab apples (Malus) are related to the common apple and are grown for their lavish display of spring flowers and edible fruits which can be made into jelly. They are also very useful pollinators as they have a long flowering period and are often interplanted in commercial apple orchards to assist with pollination. Crab apples make ideal specimen trees and are suitable for smaller gardens. To ensure rapid establishment, crab apple trees are supplied bare-rooted and unless otherwise stated will be 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch. Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order. All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).

Rhubarb 'Thompson's Terrifically Tasty' (3 crowns)
£15.50Rhubarb 'Thompson's Terrifically Tasty' (3 crowns)This aptly named variety goes back more than 80 years to the village of Great Oakley in Essex. It has been selected year on year and replanted by the Thompsons, who grow rhubarb commercially for sale into the London wholesale markets. It's great attribute is that it is the very first outdoor rhubarb on the market, as early as February, which means that it competes with the forced 'Golden Triangle' rhubarb but without all the bother of harvesting in the cellar with a candle on your head! In the first New Year flush the stems are shortish but thick and plentiful. The second crop in mid summer is an altogether larger stem of fine mid red colour. The flavour is delicious and when cooked with a handful of elderflowers makes a superb dessert.Buy Now
