The humble apple tree is more widely planted by UK gardeners than any other fruit variety.
It grows in most soils apart from bogs and shallow chalk, and crops well at altitudes up to 800 feet (even higher, in the right position).  

There are varieties that cope with severe frost pockets, and they can be trained on wires as short as 30-40cm tall (stepovers), or in rows with only 60–90cm between plants (cordons), so there is a variety for practically every garden! 

  • Uses: Eating, cooking, juicing and cider apple production
  • Good Points: Huge variety of tree, shape, blossom, cropping time
  • Position: Grow almost anywhere below 600 feet above sea level, where there is drainage and light

Dwarf Apple Trees

There are two kinds of dwarf tree, both of which are suitable for large pots.  

  1. Those that you, the owner, prune and train to restrict their growth, such as cordons and espaliers. You make them from maidens (1-year-old trees), which could also be grown into a normal-sized tree if you let them.
  2. Those that are "naturally" small due to the specialist grafting techniques and restrictive rootstocks we used to propagate them in the nursery. 
    They are known as patio, mini, or dwarf fruit trees. Even without pruning, they will never become a normal-sized tree.

Buying Apple Trees

For most gardens, it makes sense to start with a bush or half-standard, where available. 
Remember that if you want espaliers, cordons or stepovers you will need to start with a maiden (selected varieties are available as ready-made cordons).

Barerooted trees are delivered between November and the end of March, the winter planting season.
Selected varieties are available pot grown year round, both as normal trees or as dwarf patio trees

All our mail order fruit trees come with Free Returns, and our Replacement Guarantee for bareroot stock, so you can give them a whirl with complete confidence.

Apple trees grow best in a warm, sunny spot, with some shelter from extreme winds and plenty of moisture.

Our Guide to Buying Apple Trees goes into more detail.

Which Apple Varieties Should I Choose?

We sell over 100 varieties, roughly grouped into eaters, cookers, ciders, juicers (most apples are good for at least two of those purposes).

The Best Apple Varieties for the British Home Grower

  • The single best all-round, multipurpose apple that is great for eating, cooking, juicing, and cider is James Grieve
  • The two best normal eating apples for the home grower are Red Windsor for the West, and Red Falstaff for the East. The best russet apple is Norfolk Royal Russet.
  • The best cooking apple is Bramley's Seedling.
  • The best cider apples are "vintage quality", meaning that you only need that one variety for a full-bodied brew. 
    There are four basic cider flavour categories, and the best vintage apples in each are: Kingston Black (Bittersharp), Browns Apple (Sharp), Sweet Coppin (Sweet), and Ashton Brown Jersey (Bittersweet).

The most popular supermarket varieties (all of which taste far better home-grown) are:

  • Golden Delicious: Sweet and more chewy than crisp.
  • Braeburn: Sharper than Golden delicious, but still sweet, and very crisp. Only suitable for warm Southern areas. 
  • Gala: A milder flavour than the others on this list, medium-crisp.
  • Granny Smith: Almost citrus-sharp and very firm: a love-it-or-hate-it green eater that also cooks nicely!
  • Cox's Orange Pippin: Superb aromatic flavour. Not ideal for organic growing: Sunset is a great alternative.
  • Various Russets (Egremont, Herefordshire, Norfolk Royal): Mild flavour with hints of nut, relatively soft flesh, perfect with cheese.

Other considerations:

  • Cropping period: Discovery is one of the first to ripen, around the end of August. Winter Gem is not ready until the end of October. 
  • Size: Pitmaston Pineapple is ideal for a child's lunch box, whereas as Howgate Wonder is the record holder for largest exhibition apple.

What is an apple rootstock?

To propagate a given fruit tree, you take a cutting (scion) and graft it onto a rootstock, which primarily controls the tree's vigor. You might think of the scion as the body of a car, and the rootstock as the engine: the fruit is the same, but the rate of growth and final size of the tree is different.
Learn more about and buy your own apple & pear rootstocks.

Almost all of our apples are on British grown MM106 rootstocks, apart from cordons on M9, and some vigorous bushes on M26: each tree's product page will tell you.
