Buy Our Bare Root Apple Trees Because...... 

Bare Root Isaac Newton Cooking Apple Tree
Our bare root Isaac Newton is also known as the "Flower of Kent". This may not go down too well with the other half when you turn up on Valentines day with a bouquet of 12 cooking apple trees. Described by the nursery as not the most attractive, it appears it is a cooking apple tree that only a mother could love and probably best equipped to work on radio instead of TV.

Large greenish yellow apples with dull red stripes, it cooks down to a smooth puree which non culinary people might call mush or paste.

If you are a regular user of gravity and want a cooking apple tree for posterity then you may want to buy this because apparently material from an apple tree in the garden of Sir Isaac Newton in Woolsthorpe was taken and repropagated and this is a descendant of that tree.

The theory for gravity came about because Isaac was wondering why apples fell from the trees. He may have been sat underneath his own apple tree while pondering or could have been scrumping from his neighbours garden, we shall never know.

Bare Root Apple Tree Jargon Explained
The options we give you when selecting an Apple tree are made up of the following terms. 

  M25 Mature height around 4.5 + metres, slower to reach full fruit production but much more of it.  
  MM106 Mature height of around 3.6 metres, slower to reach full fruit production but more of it compared to M9, M26 and M27.  
  M9 Grows to a final height of around 2.5 metres. Reaches full fruiting potential quite quickly.  
  M26 Grows to a final height of around 3.0 metres. Reaches full fruiting potential quite quickly.  
  M27 Grows to a final height of around 1.5 metres. Reaches full fruiting potential quickly.  
  Straight Lead 1m or clear trunk i.e. no branches    
  Cordon Pruned to produce apples very quickly (1-3 years), favoured with commercial growers. More columnar than round shape. Less of a harvest compared to MM106.  
  Bush Clear stem of 45cm before branches grow out. A vase like shape with an open centre.   
  Half Standard Clear stem of  around 1 m. Conventional tree shape e.g. lollipop,  allowing easy grass mowing or companion planting.  
  Maiden 1-2 years old, no pruning or shaping has taken place. A blank slate for you to shape and train e.g. fan or espalier. Not advisable to plant and leave, will need pruning for 2 more years.   
  Patio Ideal for container growing. Usually comes with a root stock that keeps the fruit tree quite small so can be grown in pots.  
  Self Fertile Will produce fruit without another apple tree nearby.  
  C1,C2,C3,C4,C5 If your apple tree is NOT SELF FERTILE (they will be listed if they are) then you will need a second apple tree nearby of a similar number i.e. the same or one above or one below. So an apple tree from a C3 requires a C2, C3 or C4 planted close by for it to produce fruit. Triploids are an exception, see below.  
  Bare Root Available from November to March only. Comes with no pot or dirt around roots and is cheaper than potted options. Orders purchased outside this time will be held for delayed delivery until the next season starts.  
  1 or 2 Year How old the tree is. The roots are usually 2 years older than the rest of the tree.  
  TRIPLOID You have a selfish tree. It will be pollinated by other trees but the pollen it has to offer is useless. See TRIPLOID POLLINATION for more information.  

Planting A Maiden Apple Tree And Leaving
The tree will grow but will likely have problems. You may have long thin branches that snap under the weight of a heavy apples crop, the foliage could become too dense trapping moisture and allowing disease in and it may have an odd unbalanced shape to it. We strongly advise pruning for 3 years. Have a look on Youtube for pruning maiden fruit trees.  
   
Bare Root Apple Tree Ages And Heights
Heights vary depending on root stock however 1.25 to 2 metres tall is an average apple tree height at delivery.

Bareroot Season
All bare root plants need to be planted between November and March whereas our containerised apple trees can be planted all year round. Height can be restricted by pruning or putting the apple tree in a container to restrict growth (minimum 30 litres, smaller the pot, smaller the tree will be)

Select the root stock you desire from the list above or if you are unsure, telephone us on 0800 043 1057 or use the enquiry page.

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.
