Apple Trees - Pot Grown

Apples are one of the most rewarding fruit trees to grow, not just because they produce a good crop from an early age but also because no supermarket apple is equal to the crispness and flavour of a freshly picked, homegrown apple. Apples are easy to grow but some need pollinating from another variety of apple so choose a self fertile type if you only wish to grow one tree. A pollination table is provided to help you decide which ordinary varieties (non self-fertile) will pollinate one another. Most varieties offered flower around the same time and so will pollinate each other, although there are a few exceptions like Bramley's Seedling, known as triploid varietes, which won't pollinate other apples. If you have a small garden the bush varieties only grow to about 3 metres so they don't take up much space and the fruits are easy to pick without the need for a ladder. They can also be grown as espaliers against a wall. Dwarf Patio Apples have a maximum  height of 1.5 - 2m and can be grown in a pot so they are the ideal choice for people with little or no garden
