Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 4.5m apart with 6m between rows

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

Pollination

  • Pollination Group: Self-pollinating

Fruit trees will only produce fruit if their flowers have been pollinated. This is usually done by flying insects such as honey bees, bumblebees, flies, wasps etc. This tree is self-pollinating; it produces compatible flowers that can pollinate each other. However, even self-fertile varieties tend to crop better when another cultivar is planted nearby for pollination. Although this is not necessary to produce fruit, it will offer improved crops. The two trees will have to be near each other for the pollination process to be successful. The general consensus is that the two trees should be within 18m (55ft) of each other. To make things a bit easier fruit trees are categorised into different pollination groups. Just remember that the fruit must be the same; only an apple tree can pollinate another apple tree.

Crab Apple Benefits

Crab apple trees are usually grown as ornamental trees. They have stunning large blossoms in spring, foliage that goes from green to golden red/brown, and attractive small fruits in autumn. Bees will be drawn to the blossom, whilst birds will flock to the tree in autumn to feast on its fruits. We are slightly fussier than birds though and as such crab apples are very rarely eaten raw. This is due to their unpalatable sour taste and small size. However, they can be used to create a delicious crab apple jelly.

This is an example of our polypot - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season.
