Sow and Plant
Plant in mid-fall or early winter when it’s not too cold for a little root growth to help them establish. Should be planted with at least one other apple tree which flowers at a similar time to aid pollination.
Prune towards the end of the season to remove any dead or overcrowded branches and to shape if required.
Harvest when apples are ripe.
