Growing Calendar for Patio Apple Tree - Golden Delicious x1
Delivery: Mid November to Late May
Ignore the bland tasting specimens in the supermarket, this variety truly comes into its own when grown fresh in the garden. A good apple for storing.
Semi Dwarfing Rootstock, requires summer pruning to maintain compact habit. Don’t be put off by bland tasting supermarket specimens. Homegrown Golden Delicious have a fantastic sweet flavour and excellent shelf life.
Receiving your bare root tree
Dig a hole that’s large enough to fit the entire root mass without any roots being broken, bent or emerging from the surface. It basically needs to be deep enough to entirely cover the roots all the way up to the soil mark on the stem.
Use a granular fertiliser to give the planting hole a boost before planting.
Position the plant into the planting hole (making sure it’s straight and upright) and fill back in with the dug-out soil.
Firm down the soil around the base of the rose gently with your hands. Give the plant a good soak with water straight away after planting. Surround the plant with a mulch of bulky compost or manure to give it a good feed and insulate the very active roots.
Flowering Group: FG4
Years until fruiting from planting: 2
Age of tree at despatch: 2
Height at full growth: 3m/10ft
Most of our trees are delivered as bare rooted specimens with approximate height of: 3.5ft - 5ft / 105cm - 140cm depending on the variety.
In order to ensure a good pollination pick fruit trees from within the same or from adjacent flowering groups.
We may prune your tree before it arrives to your door. We do this to encourage your tree to branch freely which makes them better looking and more productive.
thanks and glad of advice
Apple-tree growing is as easy or as involving as you want to make it. We’ve included it in our new-to-gardening guide because you can plant up an apple tree in a container, and with a little care get large, plump apples to harvest.
Growing apples is satisfying and rewarding. If there’s space for only one apple tree in your garden, decide whether you’d rather go for a ‘dessert’ apple type or a ‘cooking’ type
