Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

A very attractive, naturally dwarf almond tree which is ideal for the patio! Boasting an abundance of pretty pink blossom in early spring, Almond 'Garden Prince'® is grafted on to dwarfing 'peach seedling' rootstock to form a small tree with good resistance to peach leaf curl. Although perfectly hardy, almond trees require a frost free winter and a warm dry summer in order to produce a crop. Sweet almonds bloom early in the year when few pollinating insects are around so flowers will need pollinating by hand for good crops. Height and spread: 1.2m (4'). Rootstock Peach Seedling.

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 3 years.

Feed and water patio almond trees regularly throughout the growing season. Fruit and nut trees do not suffer weed competition well so keep containers free of weeds. If growing sweet almond in the ground, keep grass and weeds clear from within a 30cm radius of the base of the tree. To improve fruiting, move almond trees in containers to a cool, bright, frost-free position in the autumn, keeping the compost just moist. Top-dress almond trees in containers each spring with a slow-release fruit fertiliser. For almonds grown in the ground, remove any suckers at ground level in spring, and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Almond blossom is particularly susceptible to frost and may require protecting with a layer of horticultural fleece if grown outside.

Like all members of the Prunus family, the almond tree should only be pruned in summer to avoid the risk of bacterial infection. Almonds fruit on one year old wood. They require little pruning other than the occasional removal of any damaged or crowded branches.

Although perfectly hardy, almond trees require a frost free winter and a warm dry summer in order to produce a crop. Grow patio almond trees in large 60cm (24") diameter containers filled with a soil based compost such as John Innes No 3. Alternatively plant dwarf almond trees in borders in any well drained, neutral soil, choosing a sheltered, sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil, and drive a stake into the planting hole to support the tree once it is planted. Plant almonds at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery, and use a tree tie to fasten the tree to the stake.
