planting dwarf apple tree

Posted: 22/10/2013 at 17:31

Hallo goldfinch2

I would suggest a pot at least 50x50 cm, use a humus rich compost and soak the roots in water for an hour or two as soon as it arrives. Hopefully, your tree will come with some instructions. If not, try and contact the supplier and ask their advice.

According to the site below, you will need a second tree to pollinate or at least another apple tree in the near vicinity. Scroll down, the Braeburn is the third one down.

Love your garden, especially the patio, Lead Farmer. How do you get your clematis to grow so bushy? Mine flower nicely but are very spindly/leggy. I do cut them down in Spring according to type, but maybe I have to feed them more? If so, what?

Morning Brumbull

Sorry to hear about the rain, no doubt we'll get it here in a few days. Unusual weather for mid October here, some areas to get 25C today, here up to 20. Will have to get out and take in the lantana and plumbago which are still flowering. No room for such big pots in the porch, so will probably have put them down into the laundry.

Looking at property? Are you an estate agent?
