How to pollinate a Bramley apple tree...

Posted: 01/11/2014 at 08:36

It won't make any difference at all putting the plum alongside the apples, they are a different genus --- apples are malus and plums are prunus.

good luck and happy planting.

My Penstemons flower the same year i grow them from cuttings, what part of the country do you live? I live in South Devon so maybe it's warmer than where you are.

How do trees come into your life?

What is your soil like,is it free draining or clay?

Penstemons like a sheltered but sunny spot in quite a free draing spot.
