All Apple Trees

Apple trees, also known by the Latin name Malus domestica, are the most widely cultivated fruit trees and we have a vast range of varieties to reflect this. There's eating apples, cooking apples, cider apples and even dual purpose apples for those that want it all. When space is limited, family fruit trees are a great option as they have multiple varieties grafted onto one tree.

Choosing & Growing Apple Trees

We offer a vast range of apple varieties to choose from and with a few considerations it is easy to narrow your choice down. Think about the location where you’re going to plant apple trees and what space is available. Most neighbourhoods have other apple trees for pollination, but if you live in a very remote location and are only planting one apple tree then we would recommend a self-fertile variety as these do not require a pollination partner. The final height and spread depends on both the rootstock and the variety, however all apple trees require at least one pruning every year to encourage a good crop so they can be kept smaller if you wish.

Choose an apple that will suit your taste and the purpose you want them for, whether it is eating, cooking or even cider making. Apple trees produce fruit from late summer to early autumn and all the apple trees we sell on the website are pot grown so can be planted at any time of the year. However, if you do want bare root apples trees, please contact us.
