The Highlights

    • This is the tree to get you started on making those delicious Crabapple jams
    • The fruit has a plum-like size, full of flavour and with high level of pectin making jams easy to set
    • Alternatively you can leave the abundance of orange fruit for the pollinators, they will love it
    • Springtime will bring delicate white flowers opening from pink buds
    • Foliage will also bring some delight with its mid-green colour turning into autumnal shades of orange, yellow and bronze
    • With its upright habit, this Crabapple grows to 4.5x4.5m
    • Easy to maintain and hardy tree, thriving in all moist and well-drained soils
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE

Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

9L Eco Pot
This tree is supplied in a 9L Eco Pot, which is approx D15 x H30cm. Eco Pots use 70% less plastic then traditional pots and can be recycled easily. A 9L pot allows ample space for good root development and can support a good size tree.
Bare Root
Our trees are supplied as “bare roots” meaning that the roots of the trees are established below the ground but not actively growing (dormant) between November and March. As bare roots are stored without any soil or pot, they would easily settle themselves when in contact with soil in your garden. Don't panic if your tree is not showing any sign of growth above the ground comes April, as it's still in the dormant phase.

Care Guide

A little watering when new.

When newly planted, the trees would love a little watering at least once a month for the initial couple of months. Afterwards keep moist but well drained.MORE
