Frequently asked questions
What time of year is best to plant apples?
Apples and other perennials are best planted in the fall and early spring to reduce stress and transplant shock.
How do I keep my trees small so I won't need a ladder?
Tress grafted onto rootstock like the M9 and M26 are an ideal choice for dwarfing apple trees. These trees stay small for their whole lifespan, and are ideal for training techniques such as espalier. To learn about the M9 and M26 click HERE.
I'm not sure if I need another tree to help with pollination?
Apples are pollinated by insects that can fly long distances, so trees that are planted some distance apart still work as polination partners. If you have a tree in the front yard, and want to plant one in the back yard, that's probably fine; likewise with a neighbours apple across the street.
