Care Guide

Average pest and disease resistance

May need protection from aphids, woolly aphid, fruit tree red spider mite and caterpillars. It could also be affected by apple scab, apple cranker and powdery mildews. Be cautious of fire blight.MORE

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

Full Sun to Partial Shade

This Crabapple tree loves full sun or partial shade in a sheltered location. Choosing a spot away from strong winds will allow all the tree's resources to go towards growing blossom and protecting its display.MORE

Most fertile, well-drained soils

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

Feed when first planted

After planting your tree add some fertiliser and cover with mulch to ensure all the water and nutrients get to the roots. Over time, replace the mulch and feed the tree with slow release fertiliser annually to help the plant maintain its growth and create a beautiful display of blossom. MORE

Little or no pruning required

Crabapples create a well branched framework naturally, so little or no pruning is required.MORE
