Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Pest and disease resistance is above average.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

Any well drained soil

This tree will flourish in any moderately fertile, moist and well drained soil except for chalk.MORE

Feed in spring

Apply a general purpose liquid fertiliser in spring in order to promote healthy growth.MORE

Prune annually

Prune lightly in early spring, removing dead and badly placed shoots.MORE
