General description of Bountiful:
These large apples are mainly used for cooking, which makes them sweet and firm with a moist texture that oozes with juice. Because they hold their shape after being sliced and cooked, they are good for topping apple pies and other apple desserts that need to look neat as well as taste good.
They are well shaped apples, predominantly green and take on a red blush towards the end of the season. The fresh fruit are generally best used for cooking, but as they ripen off the branch by mid October you can use them a nice, crisp eating apple, if you like a sharp flavour.
These trees are naturally quite tidy and low maintenance in terms of pruning. They begin cropping heavily when they are young.
All of our Bountiful trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks, except for the cordons, which are grown on M9 rootstocks.
Pollination Partners for Bountiful:
Your trees are self sterile and their flowers must be pollinated to make fruit.
Bountiful flowers for a long time, so it is really in pollination Groups A & B.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups A, B & C.
See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners & more tips about pollination.
Bountiful Disease notes:
Disease resistance: Mildew.
History & Parentage:
This is a relatively new variety of apple tree, bred in the 1960's at the East Malling Research Station in Kent, reputedly from a Cox's Orange Pippin, which is a supremely tasty apple, and a Lane's Prince Albert which, like Bountiful, stays in one piece when used as a cooking apple.
How Apple Trees are Measured & Delivered:
Our fruit trees are delivered in up to 3 shapes and you can also buy selected apple trees as ready made cordons.
Maiden: This unbranched tree is the smallest starting size. You can train maidens into espaliers and cordons.
Cordon: Bountiful trees are spur-bearers, so they can be made into cordons and espaliers.
Bush: This is a style of freestanding tree with a short trunk of about 60cms. It will grow to about 3 metres tall.
Half-Standard: This is a freestanding style that will grow into a full sized, "normal" apple tree, about 4 metres tall.

Delivery: The basic delivery charge for orders of bareroot plants is £9.49 + vat, which increases to £12.55 + vat if you add any pot-grown plants, standard trees or fruit trees to the order.
Because couriers sometimes experience delays, we schedule delivery by week, not by day. Therefore, please plan your planting day for the weekend at the end of the delivery week or for the week following delivery, at the earliest.
You can choose the delivery week that suits you during checkout and we will email you the day before your plants are due to arrive.
Payment: We do not charge your card until we begin to prepare your order for packing.
Guarantee: If any plants die within a year, we will replace them. We only ask that you follow our planting & growing instructions and sent us clear photographs of the dead plants in situ, so we can help to make sure that the replacement plants succeed. You only pay for the delivery of the replacements.
Please note that our guarantee is void if there is a hosepipe ban in your area: your newly planted hedging must be watered in dry weather while it is establishing. The best way to water is very thoroughly every few days: at least once a week if there is no heavy rain.
Our nursery has been supplying container grown and bareroot hedging plants to gardeners, farmers and town planners since 1949. Our website started in 2003, so we do understand the concerns that you may have about buying hedging plants online. If any of your plants are damaged when they arrive or if you are otherwise not satisfied with your order after you inspect it, please repackage it and contact us. We will give you a refund or send replacements and send a courier to come and collect the unwanted plants.
