Red Windsor Apple Tree
Becoming well-known because of its superb Cox type flavour and very heavy crops, Red Windsor (Malus domestica 'Red Windsor') is a frost hardy apple tree, especially at blossom time. It has very compact growth which makes it ideal as a garden apple variety. Easy to grow with good disease resistance, we recommend Red Windsor whole heartedly. This apple is the product of the cross between the apple varieties Cox's Orange Pippin x Sport of Alkmene and was first introduced in 1985.
Considered good for juicing , growing across the UK and for Patio growing so if you are a Scottish apple juice addict living in a flat then the Red Windsor apple tree is for you.
A good pollinator for other apple trees because of the abundance of blossom in the Spring.

Growing Our Trees In The UK
To date, we have checked the passports of our trees and none seem to have sneaked off for non UK holidays so all are UK grown.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
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 unless the plant is very hardy.
Fruit Tree Heights
Taller does not mean more value for money. A 1 year old fruit tree can easily be substantially higher than a 2 year old, this is because they are hard pruned at 1 year old to create the desired shape. Some trees have over 100cm of height removed. They can then have another pruning at 2 years old to increase fruit growing real estate. Most fruit trees will benefit from having a third to half of the seasons new growth cut back in the Autumn to prevent long whippy branches which break easily. Age and pruning completed determine real value.
