Bush AppleTrees

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. Bush type Apple Trees are normally grafted on M26 rootstocks which give them a final height of 2 to 3m, they can be kept smaller by annual pruning. Bush trees are best planted in the ground

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.
