Malus domestica Allington Pippin apple trees are best planted in a sunny sheltered spot in your garden. They can be planted as a specimen into a lawn or perhaps lining a driveway along with some suitable pollination partners, where the lovely blossom can be enjoyed in spring.
If you have the space why not create a wildlife friendly orchard in a secluded spot at the bottom of the garden where you can let the grass grow long? If you're looking for suitable pollination partners you can browse our full range of apple trees here.
Look out for: The blossom has some susceptibility to frost damage so avoid planting in frost pockets, and can suffer from mildew. However, it has a good resistance to scab and is suitable for wet regions.
