Apple trees flourish in a rich loamy soil and sunshine but are adaptable and can be planted in most soils provided they are given some compost and some feed such as bone meal to start it off. They can be sprayed with a seaweed solution which helps to combat any disease. They will not flourish in water logged soil or in dank frost pockets and it is not advisable to plant on the site of an old apple tree. Many people do not prune apple trees but they can be trained pruned in summer and or winter can be helpful with growth and productivity. All in all apple trees are an easy tree to look after and depending on your outlook can be left to grow without a great deal of attention.
Spring: weed, mulch and spray with seaweed solution
Summer: Thin fruit, summer prune (optional) spray with seaweed solution.
Autumn: Use poor fruit first and pick the best for storage.
Winter: Hard prune, add copious compost, remove all mummified fruit.
The tree is watered before carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
