Apple Coronet Family Tree

A unique plant for a small space

Two varieties of delicious eating apples on one miniature tree make these easy to grow plants suitable for the smallest of gardens or a container.

Where?

Happiest in full sun so that the fruits will ripen well and any good garden soil. These trees will stay naturally small without pruning and are ideal for containers.

How?

Use good quality loam based compost for container growing and feed once a week through the summer months with a suitable liquid fertiliser.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Position the stake in the hole, on the side of the prevailing wind and drive it into the soil, to a depth of 60cm. The stake should be a third of the height of the tree, when planted. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole close to the stake, with the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Use two tree ties to secure the stem to the stake. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year. Check ties regularly and adjust them as the tree grows.

Planting site Patio container, Flower border and beds
