Why grow Super Dwarf Eating Apples?We’re happy to offer a range of apple varieties grafted on to super dwarf rootstock. This gives you the best of both worlds, traditional varieties with full size fruit from a very small space. These are not simply varieties which are grown for their dwarfing habit, which may or may not have good taste, keeping abilities etc. A small row 5-7 metres long planted 30cm apart with several varieties will provide enough apples for the family for a whole year. The 15m row in our home garden will yield from 650-750kg of fruit per season. We have varieties we start picking in late February and we pick right through until August. We tend to keep the apples on our trees as this is where apples keep the best. These trees must be staked or trellised due to the load of fruit and small root system. Daily Summer watering is important especially when fruit is developing. The only pruning required is to keep the central leader, (main shoot) upright and dominant and shorten any side shoots to keep them in their space. If you have any queries regarding training or pruning please don’t hesitate to email. If you can provide a photo of the particular tree, we can then give you specific advice. Please be aware of others selling 'dwarf' apple trees but are simply a litle bit smaller than a standard size tree.  The range below are grafted on extremely dwarfing rootstocks.

Super Dwarf Pears-Cultural Information

Our super dwarf pear varieties can be grown in a similar way to our super dwarf apples.  They are grown in the nursery as a cordon (or one leader) but they can be also grown successfully with two leaders approximately 500mm apart. To do this the tree will need to be pruned back quite low so two leaders will shoot.  Be careful not to prune below the graft.  Be aware that some varities have to be double grafted.  If you're unsure where to prune please send us an email.  With regards pollination; pears generally require another variety to crop well.  We've supplied a suggested polliniser with each variety.  However, you will find that if you reside in an urban area or a a rual area with fruiting gardens, there will be adequate cross pollination without the need for another tree.  Trees just need to be within a bee's flight area, which is approximately 3klm (2miles)
