2 Year Bush = A two year old tree that has been pruned back in the first winter to form a bush shape. Generally trees will be 150-175cm in height with multiple side branches.

Pollination Made Simple 

Most suburban situations provide good pollen due to the close proximity of other gardens. It is not always necessary to have pollinators if the bees and other pollinating insects are generous with their visits. If you have no other Apple tree close by then select two varieties in the same group or the adjoining group ie group 2 and 4 will pollinate group 3 as will any others in group 3. Some varieties are self fertile.

Your order will then be ready for you to collect during our normal opening hours which are Monday-Friday 07.30-16.30. Our plants are grown in fields that can be 2 miles away from our office so it is not possible to just turn up and select your own trees.

A delivery charge of £8.50 is for all single tree orders. £10.00 if more than one tree. £15.00 charge for larger orders except in the case of the Espalier Fans and Step Over trained trees where this charge is a maximum of £40.00.

Ordered from Blackmoor at the beginning of last year. The tree was a beautiful specimen of a cordon and beared fruit within the first year.

Excellent product from Blackmoors came in December well packaged as always now growning very well and has produced a truly beautifull display for a young tree

Nice healthy strong looking maiden arrived within 2 days of order. I been told this is a very good cooking apple but is not grown commercially as it does not travel well. Can't wait to try it !

Another excellent product from Blackmoors. Every tree we have bought has arrived safely and performed well. Customer service is always outstanding. Thank you Blackmoor!

There is a number of reasons why I keep coming back to Blackmoor's; excellent quality stock, impeccable customer service and speedy dispatch. I honestly can not fault this superb retail business. I've now bought 14 cookers this year of which 7 have been trained into cordons. Well done.

I chose this variety as you say in your description as a good one for a northern garden. I live just outside Newcastle and it performs very well for me.
