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.

Whilst in a small pot, your apple trees will need regular watering, try not to let the soil dry out at any time. They do not need a rich soil but a top dressing of manure or seaweed will give any tree a hand to settle in to a new position. In a pot, topsoil from the garden on general purpose compost will be fine.

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
