Apple

It makes delicious pink juice

Rosy red fruits ripen in mid autumn and are best eaten straight from the tree. Blossoms in spring are a great feature in any garden and this variety is handy for small spaces as it will still crop well without other apples nearby. 

Where?

Choose a sunny or partly shaded site which is sheltered from strong winds. 

How?

Dig a hole that is at least twice the size of the existing container and add well rotted manure to the soil. Don't forget to stake your tree until it has established.  

This modern variety is known for it's pink juice which makes a refreshing drink

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 Cottage garden, Informal garden, City garden
