Apple Trees (Bare-rooted)

Apples are the most reliable and popular of the tree fruits with varieties suitable for almost all parts of Britain. The wide range of varieties means good quality and fine flavoured fruit can be provided over a long season. The majority of Ken Muir’s apple trees are grafted on M26 semi-dwarfing rootstocks making them most suitable for bush trees, cordons and espaliers. Bush apple trees on M26 grow to 2.5-3.5m (8-12ft) in height and should be spaced 3-4.5m (10-15ft) apart.

If you have a small garden, certain varieties are available as Minarettes which are ideal as they can be planted as close as 60cm (2ft) apart.

Apples are separated into pollination groups according to when they flower, starting with the earliest flowering varieties as group A, group B a little later and so on. Varieties within the same pollination group will usually cross pollinate one another because they flower at the same time. Varieties in adjacent pollination groups will also serve as pollinators for one another because in most seasons there is sufficient overlap of pollen resulting from an overlap in the flowering period.

Apple trees are available for delivery from late November until late March.

We have now stopped taking orders for apple trees for despatch this season.  We will list the varieties that we will have available to order for next season, later in the summer.
