Crabapple trees are easy to grow. Their growth and output will likely be excellent providing you follow our planting and care instructions. Below we address some common query topics:
- Hardiness: Some species of crabapple are native to the UK, and the species that aren't are from much colder regions, so the UK's mild winters will not affect your plant.
- Position: Crabapple trees benefit from being planted in full sun. Planting them in a sheltered spot also helps them put greater resources into flowering.
- Soil: Soil types can be an unwelcome confusion as many plants will adapt to their conditions. Nonetheless, less than ideal conditions will certainly limit your crabapple’s growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your plant of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis; causing its roots to rot and creating an optimal environment for disease. Similarly, compressed soils can starve a tree of oxygen and water, so do not compress their soil when planting.
