One of the best loved fruits, apples are probably the easiest tree fruits to grow and are very popular with gardeners. In the shops we only tend to see a handful of varieties, yet there are literally thousands of known cultivars each having their own characteristics. We have very carefully selected what we believe to be a diverse range of varieties to suit all tastes and even the most challenging growing conditions - some are recent introductions and some are much loved gems from our heritage.  Our apple trees are grafted onto M26 semi-dwarfing rootstock, which will produce a tree that is easy to grow, easy to control and easy to pick. Cordons should be restricted to 1.8-2.4m (6-8ft) in height and can be spaced 60cm (2ft) apart. To ensure rapid establishment, cordon apple trees are supplied bare-rooted and 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).
