We have organic apple trees for sale. Grown on St Martin’s, the varieties we have grafted are tried and tested for flavour, disease resistance, yield and suitability to growing in this climate.
There are a range of varieties available, details below. 1 or 2 years old, these are ideal to transplant now.They come in two main rootstock sizes:
MM106 – semi vigorous, growing to about 10-12ft high, spacing about 4m apart
M26 – semi dwarf, growing to about 8-10ft high, spacing about 3m apart
M25 – vigorous, growing to about 20ft hight, spacing 6m apart (sheltered locations only on Scilly)
As bareroot trees, they will only be available until the middle of March, as this is the key time to plant fruit trees.
Two sizes are available: small (up to 2ft high) at £12 each, and medium (up to 4ft high) at £16 each. All prices include delivery to your island on Scilly. Mainland deliveries are available, with postage costs added.
