Apricot Trees

Apricots are the most delicate, delicious fruit and growing your own apricot trees is so rewarding! Get the most from yours with our expert advice on choosing, growing and caring for your apricot trees.

Choose your Apricot trees

If growing outdoors, choose the most hardy and reliable variety New Large Early, which does exactly as its name suggests! For growing in pots or containers, choose a compact variety - Early Moorpark, deliciously sweet Flavourcot and heavy-cropping Tomcot are available in sizes to suit any space.

Where to grow Apricot trees

Apricots are not the hardiest of fruit, and should be grown outdoors only in the warmer parts of the UK, on a South or West facing wall. However they do extremely well in containers sited on a sheltered patio in the warmer months and brought indoors over Winter. Smaller trees can even be grown in a greenhouse, where they will fruit earlier.

Apricot tree care tips

Apricots tend to blossom early when there may not be many flying insects around, in which case they can be hand-pollinated with a paintbrush. Water them well and prune to keep them in good shape. For more tips on caring for your apricot trees and preventing common problems, see our Full, Care Guide.
