Fruit trees will succeed in most garden soils that are not excessively acid or alkaline and are best in full sun and sheltered from cold winds. They are available on a variety of rootstocks which means there is a size to suit every garden. Download our Fruit Trees leaflet here.
Apples will require cross-pollination between different varieties to ensure good fruit set. We have a list of varieties available in their groups in accordance with the Royal Horticultural Society pollination table. Some varieties do not produce pollen; these are Triploids and require groups of 3 trees to ensure pollination. Apples can be pollinated by some Crab Apples (Malus), e.g. John Downie or Golden Hornet.
