Desired quantity:    

Our Red Sentinel Crab apple has scented white flowers in the Spring that go on to provide stunning cherry-red crab apples that stay on the tree well into January providing a good source of food for birds or can be cut for Christmas decorations. Expect the blooms around April but as with train time tables it depends where you are that dictate accuracy. The further North you are the later the blooms will be by up to a month.  

Like other crab apples, Red Sentinel is a small tree, with a final height of 5m (16ft 8in) and is tolerant of pollution, so ideal for small, town gardens where car fumes or industrial pollution is an issue.  

Being a bit of good looking tree it has won the RHS award of garden merit and is suitable for planting in public spaces because it is long lived and robust (this does not mean over weight!).

The Red Sentinel Crab apple will benefit from an occasional thinning to encourage new replacement growth. You could train against a wall as the Red Sentinel is well suited for that or grow in a pot however, depending on the size of the pot this may have a dwarfing effect.

Another bonus to the Red Sentinel is that it is tolerant of clay soils.  

This tree is supplied at of height of between 1.5m and 1.7m and in a 12 litre container, which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental 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. 

Crab Apple Trees Listed As Patio
Any Crab apple tree listed as suitable for patio growing means that it has most likely been grafted onto an M27 rootstock giving it an ultimate height of around 1.5 metres. The standard 12 Litre options are usually grafted onto MM106 rootstock and ultimate heights are determined be each species. Contact us first if rootstocks are important to you. 

Crab Apple Disease Resistance
Crab apple trees are generally resistant to disease but those that seem to be considerably less prone to problems are Admiration, Pink Glow, Wedding Bouquet, ButterBall, Cardinal, Comtesa De Paris, Elk River, Coralburst, Donald Wyman, Golden Gem, Gorgeous, Indian Magic, Jelly King, Louisa, Prairie Fire, Rudolf, Sun Rival, Tina, Scarlett, Transitoria, Guardsman and White Star.

Crab Apple Pollinators
Crab apples have long flowering periods which makes them very useful as pollination partners. Many commercial orchards inter-plant crab apples with normal apple trees to increase fruit yield.
