Heritage Apple Tree

£40.00 exc delivery

These heritage apples have been specially selected for their flavour and are grown on dwarf M9 and M26 root stock making them perfect for a smaller garden or to grow in a pot. They are not self-fertile so best grown in a pair - see our great special offers on a pair of apple trees.

We have a great range of heritage apples this year including dessert apples, Egremont Russet and Kidds Orange Red. If you would prefer a cooker or an eater, or a specific variety, please put a note in the Special Instructions box in the top right of the order form but please do be aware that our apple trees have now dropped their leaves for winter.

This strong apple trees are grown on dwarf M9 rootstock so are perfect for a smaller space or even for a pot on a patio. They will eventually grow to around 8ft tall and we expect them to fruit next year.
Apple trees are hardy trees and do need to be outside. They are currently in quite a small pot so are ready to either be potted up into a larger pot or planted straight out in the ground. Choose a sunny position where the fruits can ripen and protect from strong winds and deer if they are a problem in your area.
Apple trees are best pruned around the end of August to prepare them for fruiting the following year. Remove any side shoots that are growing upwards at the trunk (ie. Those that are at less than a 45 degree angle from the trunk) and prune back any side shoots that are branching out nicely (at a greater than 45 degree angle) to about six inches in length. Always use sharp seceteurs when pruning and make clean diagonal cuts. Flowers and eventually fruit will set on these ‘old’ branches next year.
Apple trees are very tough trees that require little maintenance. Watch out for pests, including caterpillars and treat any problems early. Apple trees are deciduous so don’t worry when they lose their leaves in the winter months. Wilting or brown leaves - are the result of underwatering, give your plant a good soak and it will start to recover
