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. Bush apple trees will grow 2.4-3.6m (8-12ft) in height and spread. Apple trees are 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatchPot grown trees are available from April to late August.

 

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).
