Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

The most famous cooking apple of all, producing large fruits with a sharp acidic flavour that are ideal for making delicious pies, crumbles and highly recommended by top chefs for making purees. Awarded an RHS AGM, Apple 'Bramley's Seedling' has good disease resistance to scab and mildew. Pick 'Bramley' apples from October when mature for immediate use or lay the fruits in a cool dry place for winter storage. They will store for up to 3 months.


Grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock, the crowns of 'Bramley' apple trees are easily reached to prune, spray and pick your delicious fruit. All 'Bramley's Seedling' apple trees are 'triploids' and will set a partial crop by themselves. However, for the heaviest crops they are best grown with another apple. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator.
Root wrap tree - Height and spread: 2.5m (8') Rootstock: M9.
Patio tree - Height and spread: 1m (3') Rootstock: M27.


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water apple trees during particularly dry periods.


Pruning apple trees begins immediately after planting. Remove the central stem to just above the highest side branch. For the following 3 years, prune only the tips of the remaining main branches by one third in winter. Aim for about six main branches which will form the frame of your tree, with fruiting sub branches growing off of them. From the fourth year, some sub branches can be pruned out at the union where they join the main branch, to allow new sub branches to take their place.


In order to produce the best quality, largest apples, the fruits should be thinned in July leaving two apples remaining per cluster.

Plant apple trees in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.

Somewhat disapointed 2015-05-31

My Bramley apple tree arrived last week but had no planting instructions ;it was left at our back door [although we were in] on ringing customer service, fistly I was told to plant it with the graft below soil level. The peson I spoke to didn't seemt too sure so I rang again only to be told that the graft should be approx 2 inches above the soil level!
