MM106 Semi-Dwarfing
Apple tree varieties are usually grown by grafting them to rootstocks. This has benefits for pest resistance, genetics and the efficiency of propagation. Importantly, it also limits the height of a tree to a more manageable, specific height. MM106 apple trees tend to reach 4m tall, ideal if you have space and would like plenty of apples!


Space trees approx 3m apart

Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Has good resistance to most problems but you should take time to prune to increase air flow. This will prevent the build up of bacterial disease. Keep an eye out for fire blight or apple scab - these are more rare but require further action.MORE

Water in well

Water in thoroughly when planting. For bare root trees, you won't need to water regularly, only in dry spells when needed. You should be able to tell because the leaves will start to wilt and droop. If a container grown tree, it will need more watering until its roots are established. It should be watered every other day or so for the first few months. Then reduce to twice a week until autumn. In the second year it should have an established enough root system to support itself, just water when required as explained above for bare roots. When watering a tree it is important to give a good soaking. It is better to water heavily and less frequently than little and often as this encourages the roots to grow down into the ground.MORE

Full Sun

Plant where the tree will receive around 6-8 hours of sunlight daily in spring/summer.MORE

Happy in most soils

Prefers fertile well draining soil, can also tolerate clay soil but you will need to take some steps to improve drainage in the winter.MORE

Feeding not required

No feeding needed.MORE

Some structural pruning required

Some pruning should be done each winter to ensure that your apple tree maintains a productive shape. This can improve yields and prevent disease.MORE
