What Is A Duo Apple Tree?
It is an apple tree whereby two apple trees are grafted onto one stem at an early age. It grows as a normal tree but you get the benefits of two trees for the price of one e.g. two different species of apple.

Lord Lambourne (C2) And Braeburn (C4) Bare Root Duo Apple Tree
2 great apple trees paired for their taste with no worries about pollination as they are both self fertile. The Braeburn is a bit of a sun worshipper so best results will probably be had from the Midlands and below.

Braeburn
A self fertile eating apple tree that is good for growing in a container or in the ground with long apple storage times of 4 months or more. An apple commonly found in the supermarkets mostly because of the storage times.

For best results, plant in a sunny spot, preferably in the South of England and you will be rewarded with an excellent tasting apple, arguably even better than Golden Delicious. Commercially speaking, the Braeburn is the standard to be compared to.

In pollination group C4.

Lord Lambourne
Another outstanding apple tree that has been awarded the RHS Award Of Garden Merit. Suitable for planting almost anywhere in the UK, self fertile and good for eating or juicing. Pick around September time and expect the apples to store well until November. Considered to have good resistance to apple diseases and frost.

In pollination group C2.

Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.  

All Our Trees Are Grown In The UK
As far as we know, none of our trees have sneaked off for holidays abroad and so are UK Grown.

Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.   

What Will Be Delivered?
The Duo apple trees are grafted onto MM106 rootstock giving a mature height of around 3.5m. They will be 1 year old maidens and will be in the region of 100 to 150 cm tall. If new to gardening, you will need to research "pruning maiden apple trees". 

The Benefits Of Duo Apple Trees.

Each species is usually chosen to compliment the other e.g with pollination, taste etc. It offers more variety in less space and reduced risk of a complete harvest failure. If the harvest times are staggered then it also means you have a longer period of fresh apples. If you have other apple trees then a Duo apple tree with 2 different flowering times .e.g a group 2 and 3 or a 3 and 4,  offer pollen for longer to those other trees which should increase apple harvest yields. Finally,  2 apple trees for the price of 1!.

Manchester And Below
Commercial apple orchards seem to thin out drastically once you go past Manchester. We have used this as a VERY rough guideline to establish where the cut off point is for sun hungry apple trees. You can still grow them North of there but best results become more unlikely. For a more accurate picture, have a look at a UK map of average sun hours.
