Prunus armeniaca is the traditional Wild Apricot - a sturdy hardy tree in its wonderful natural state. Perfect for a wildlife garden or orchard area, this wild variety eventually forms broad, well-branched tree producing a profusion of lightly fragrant blossom in the spring followed by a dense canopy of lush green foliage. Grow it in a sunny, sheltered spot and once mature it’ll also provide a great harvest of sweet wild apricots which can be eaten fresh or used to make lovely sticky jams and desserts. Height: 9m (30’). Spread: 9m (30’).
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

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 apricot trees regularly during particularly dry periods.
Apricots may be fan trained against a wall or grown as a bush. When pruning apricot trees it is important to avoid winter pruning as this leaves them prone to silver leaf disease.
