Apple Trees

MAIDEN TREES These are young trees suitable for growing into bush, half standard, fan-trained, cordon, pyramid, espalier, spindlebush or other trained forms.

FAN AND ESPALIER TREES. For best results we recommend buying maidens and training them. Ready trained trees are available for collection or local delivery from the Garden Centre.

ROOTSTOCKS Trees are supplied on rootstocks best suited to the form and variety of tree offered and able to thrive in a wide range of soil and conditions. Maiden and bush apple trees are mostly on M26 or MM106, semi-dwarfing stocks. Half standards are mainly on M26 or MM106 and full standards are on a vigorous rootstock. Cider apples are on a semi-vigorous stock. Very occasionally we may supply a substitute stock of similar nature. The rootstock will be marked on the plant label.
We have available MM26 and MM106 rootstocks for your own grafting of scion wood - click here for details

HALF STANDARD, FULL STANDARD AND MINARETTES These are available only for collection from the Garden Centre. We also have trained apples and minarette (columnar) apples available. Please telephone or send us an e-mail for more information.

APPLE, BRAMLEY CLONE 20 (Malus domestica Bramley Clone 20). Award of Garden MeritSeason of Use: Nov.-Mar. Culinary (Suitable for Cooking)Go to Top of Page

Bramley Clone 20 is a great improvement for gardeners from the regular Bramley, which is such a strong grower. It is far more controllable and gets its name from the fact that it is 20% less vigorous and therefore is 20% smaller than Bramley's Original. However, it will yield a very heavy crop of these excellent apples.
Pollination: Group 2. This plant requires a pollinator, choose 2 different pollinators from groups 1, 2 or 3 (click here for more details). This plant is a triploid and provides little pollen. It should therefore not be used as a pollinator.

Good crops of apples which are smallish, greenish-yellow with red stripes and a red flush. They have a strong aroma and distinctive flavour. Dabinett is grown in most cider producing areas as it makes a bittersweet cider with a mellow, full-bodied astringency. Many cider makers use this variety as a single apple variety due to its excellent qualities. Self-fertile, mid-season flowering. Harvest in November.
Pollination: Group 2. This plant is reasonably self-fertile but will fruit better with a pollinator. Choose a pollinator in group 1, 2 or 3 (click here for more details).
