Growing Calendar for Crab Apple Tree 'Golden Hornet' 9L
Delivery: Early May to Late June
Golden Hornet is one of the best Crab Apple varieties with an RHS Award of Garden Merit.These small trees produce masses of beautiful spring blossom followed by small, round, golden-yellow crab apples from October that can be used in cooking, making an especially good jelly!
It is a great pollinator for all other dessert and cooking apples too making this a superb garden tree.
To ensure healthy growth prune out dead, damaged and diseased branches only, in winter. This keeps the tree well-ventilated, healthy and with a good framework.
Pot on into a larger container if growing as a patio tree introducing lots of rich loamy soil like John Innes No 3 compost. If growing in open soil, mulch around the base of the trunk to keep roots in the soil warm.
