Self-fertile Apple Tree

Out of stock

These self-fertile apple trees are an exciting addition to our range of fruiting trees and have been specially bred to fruit well on a smaller tree. They are grown on dwarf root stock and will do well in a container or in small space producing their first fruit later this year.
Current Description
The first of our new season self-fertile apple trees are looking good and are a classic cox style apple. They are strong grafted trees with a good shape and signs of spring buds just starting to develop. All our apple trees are specially grown for us in the UK and as well as this self-fertile variety we do also have some tasty heritage varieties too.

This strong apple trees are grown on a semi-dwarf rootstock so are perfect for a smaller space or even for a pot on a patio. They will eventually grow to around 12 ft 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 (i.e. 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 secateurs when pruning and make clean diagonal cuts. Flowers and eventually fruit will set on these ‘old’ branches next year.

Problem Solving: 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.
