Malus 'Evereste' Tree

Flowering Crab Apple Tree

from From £49.99 (VAT Free)
( £49.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

This Flowering Crab Apple is a small garden tree which boasts dazzling, unusually large white flowers opening from scarlet flower buds fading to pink, in April against a foil of dark-green leaves. In autumn, the foliage adopts a yellow/bronze hue and attractive crab apples develop, flushed with shades of yellow, orange and red. These lovely crab apples can be used for culinary purposes as a classic Cox-type dessert apple or left on the tree where they will adorn the branches until after Christmas.

Conical in habit, Malus 'Evereste' will grow to a height and spread of about 5 x 4 metres in 20 years. Malus 'Evereste' is popular amongst wildlife, particularly bees making it a reliable pollinator used in commercial apple nurseries. Pollution tolerant, crab apples are suited to urban areas and can handle most positions and soil types. Malus 'Evereste' is named after Eve Reste, the person, not the Himalyan Mountain and holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

This variety of Malus has large crab apples ideal for culinary purposes, therefore these plants are sold with zero VAT.

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order. Many are despatched within 24 hours of receiving the order, but please allow up to 10 working days to be on the safe side. There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached trees or trees over 2.5m in height (all trees called Standard, Premium Standard, Heavy Standard, Extra Heavy Standard, Mature Trees or Pleached) because we have to group orders together into geographic areas for a specialist haulage contractor to deliver. All trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure at no extra charge. Although it is rarely a problem, we do have to say that we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

The vast majority of trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your order. You can give us instructions on where to leave your delivery either via the checkout or send us a separate email. For some mature or pleached trees we may contact you in advance if the delivery driver needs help getting the tree/trees off the vehicle.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

Delivery Costs

1 small tree (most trees with a height under 1.5 metres) : £7.95 + vat

1 medium tree (most trees with a height of 1.5-2 metres) or 2-4 small trees: £9.95 + vat

2+ medium trees or 5+ small trees: £12.95 + vat

1-4 large trees (trees too large to fit in a box): £19.95 + vat

Mature trees, pleached trees or 5+ large trees: Cost is calculated in the checkout process and varies by postcode. You can buy as many trees as you want for the same delivery cost and so it can work out to be economical.

The above prices exclude the Scottish Highlands, where delivery starts from £24.95 + vat and is calculated in the checkout process.

Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and Non Mainland UK

Our courier charges are not viable for just one or two trees, but if you have a larger requirement then please do speak to us and we'll see if we can find a solution.

Planting Advice for Malus 'Evereste' Trees

When planting flowering crab apple trees, such as the Malus 'Evereste', it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown Malus trees can be planted at any time of the year. You will need to carry out the following to prepare your planting site.

Firstly, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole then dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2-3x as wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around inside the hole. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees), especially if you have poor soil. Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole.

Using 50% of the original soil and 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems. To see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

Aftercare Advice for Malus 'Evereste' Trees

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young tree and increase watering if there are extended periods of warm or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass around the area as this will only encourage it to grow more vigorously. If you know your area is prone to rabbits, we would advise using a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Malus 'Evereste' Trees

Crab Apple trees can be pruned in winter. They do not require hard pruning and you should not trim the tips of crab apple branches. Simply remove any dead or damaged branches and shoots at the base of the tree i.e. suckers and water sprouts which redirect energy resources from the main stem but do not produce strong branches.
