Family Apple Growing Tips.

Three varieties grafted onto one tree makes this an ideal tree for pollination purposes and a selection of different varieties to extend the season. If you only have space for one tree in your garden then a family tree is the right choice. The varieties will cross pollinate each other to ensure maximum crops year after year.How to grow a Family apple tree in my garden - Our Care Guide for fruit trees will help you get the very best from your tree.

When is the best time to plant a multi grafted fruit tree - Container grown apple trees can be planted at any time of the year.

Planting distance for apple trees - All fruit trees are grafted onto a rootstock. It is the rootstock that determines how big the apple tree will grow into. There is a rootstock guide on the left hand side of all fruit tree product pages that explains this. As tall as the tree will grow into would be the planting distance. Example MM106 will grow to 3-4 metres when mature. So a spacing of between 3-4 metres would be required.

Can I grow a apple tree in a pot - All fruit trees will be happy growing in a large container. A pot around 50-60cm is ideal. There is more information on growing fruit trees in containers in our FAQ page.
