Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

9L Pot
This tree is supplied in a 9L Poly-Pot, which is approx D15 x H30cm. Poly-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.

Height on arrival:

130-150cm

Eventual height:

3m

Eventual spread:

3m

Tasting notes:

Crisp and juicy

Time to first crop:

2 years
You may see your first apples the first year after planting, but don't expect substantial crops until the 3rd/4th year. Some advise thinning the fruit in the first few years so that the tree can concentrate its energy on establishing strong roots and growing.

Hardiness:

Fully hardy
Doesn't require any protection from frost

Self fertile:

Partially self fertile
For the heaviest crops it is best grown with another variety. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as a suitable pollinator. P

Uses:

Eating, juicing

Rootstock:

M26 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. M26 apple trees tend to only reach 3m tall, perfect for smaller spaces or those afraid of stepladders.

Spacing:

3m

Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Pest and disease resistance is above average and if scab is a problem in your garden then Lord Lambourne has a high resistance level and is likely to be affected only in the wettest growing years.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
