(Code F9009)

£14.99
The quintessential English russet apple. Produces showy blossoms in spring that give way to an abundant fruit crop in October ? November. The apples are a golden yellow colour and have a nutty flavour with a perfect balance of sweet and sharpness. The apples are good for keeping and great for eating fresh or can be used in cooking. They will require regular pruning and a little frost protection but are otherwise easy to maintain, very hardy and can cope with a cooler northern climate. Egremont holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit. As with other trees it can be pruned to keep down to a manageable height or restricted by growing in large containers. We supply hardy two year old trees grafted onto dwarf root stock called M26. Many cheaper alternatives supply the smaller M27 root stock, which is unreliable and will only produce a fraction of the fruit that the M26 will.

Order any two or more large fruit trees for only 12.99 each saving 2 per tree.

Pruning

Late Winter/Early Spring

Apple trees are suitable for planting in most types of moderately fertile, well drained soil, although they do not like acid soil. If possible prepare the ground some time in advance of planting. Open out holes and plant with enough space to accomodate the roots without cramping them. Plant in a sunny location as they do not prosper too well in the shade. Make sure that you plant with a stake, as this will be needed for at least five years to help support the tree. Begin weed control prior to planting and keep a clean ring around the plant (with a radius of approx 24 inches).
