Dwarf fruit trees will not grow as large as a standard fruit tree, and are not as small as the Trixzie® range. They can be grown about 2.5m apart making them a great space saver for those short on room.
Fleming’s recommend these as the pick of the dwarf crop.
Dwarf apples prefer to be planted in the ground but they can be potted if cared for correctly. Select a wide and deep pot – a half wine-barrel works well as long as you prepare good drainage from the base first. Lightly prune dwarf trees annually during winter to help motivate fruit production and fresh growth in spring.
