Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Clusters of pale pink, almost white flowers in late spring will cheer up any hedgerow that the Crab Apple is part of. The blooms are attractive to pollinating insects and will, of course later develop into the colourful crab apples that can be coloured shades of yellow, green and even red. Ideal for a colourful hedging scheme or screening. Supplied as 60 - 90cm bareroots (24 - 35"). Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting distance: 30cm (12"). (4 plants per metre for a single line fence).

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Flowering Months
Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from the base of the hedge. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost, taking care not to mound it up against the stems. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water crab apples during particularly dry periods. Crab apples require only minimal pruning in late winter or spring, to remove damaged, diseased or misplaced growth. Crab apple fruits can be harvested from autumn onwards to make delicious crab apple jelly.
Plant crab apple in a sheltered, sunny position in any fertile, well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole Plant the bare roots at their original soil level and firm them into the ground.
