D2212 is a Malus domestica cv. Laxton’s Superb x M. sieboldii that is very resistant to Apple proliferation (AP). It very much in trial stages, with regards to height but it is similar to M7 ie 3m - 4m.

Apple proliferation (AP) is a bacterium Candidatus Phytoplasma mali’ and is wide-spread in several major fruit-growing areas in Europe. is of considerable economic importance due to its negative effect on tree productivity and fruit quality.

The disease was first reported from northern Italy in 1950. In the following decades, the occurrence of AP was reported from most European countries.

The symptoms are either specific such as witches’ brooms, enlarged stipules, undersized and unmarketable fruits, either non-specific such as foliar reddening, yellowing and growth suppression.

Undersized and unmarketable fruits are the main economic losses due to AP. While fruit number is usually not affected, fruit weight is often reduced by 30-60%, the fruit colour is unsatisfactory, and the taste is poor, with the result that as much as 80% of the fruit is unmarketable.

Disease incidence and severity is higher in trees on vigorous rootstocks such as M 4, M 11 and MM 104 than on dwarfing rootstock such as M 9.

Questions (FAQs)
    Do you have a printed catalogue?

    No - We have thought about it, but not at the moment, as they way too expensive and somebody has to pay for it down the line. All of our stock can be viewed and purchased from our website which displays live ‘available’ quantities.

    Can fruit trees be grown in containers?

    Yes - All fruit trees can be grown in pots as long as they are large enough. As far as the type of container, clay pots are heavy and stable. Plastic is durable, light and easier to manage, but they have a very short life, till they start cracking. For most fruit, choose pots 50-60cm in diameter. Pots are ideal for dwarfing rootstocks, but any semi dwarfing rootstocks will need potting up to a larger container or planting out into the ground.

    Do you grow Espalier or Fan trained fruit trees?

    No – We do not grow Espalier or Fan trained fruit trees. As they are very easy to train yourself.

    Am I able to turn up and select my own fruit tree?

    No - Sorry we are not a Garden Centre or retail Nursery. Orders can be placed via our website and the collection option can be selected at the checkout. Your order will then be ready for you to collect during our normal opening hours which are Monday-Friday 07.30-16.00. Our plants are grown in fields that are 3 miles away from our office. So it is not possible to just turn up and select your own trees.

    Can you recommend a variety for me?

    No - It is hard to recommend varieties as this is down to personal taste and each variety has its own unique taste. You can see in the best sellers our most popular varieties. Also the local weather conditions has an impact.

    How can I make a donation to support your efforts.

    Yes – There is a product called ‘donation’ which enables you donate.

    Which is best, bare-root or potted trees?

    Yes and No - Each has its own advantages:

    A pot grown tree can be planted at any time of the year. They should start to fruit the following summer after planting. A Bare Root tree is grown in a field and can only be lifted and sent out during the winter months when dormant. They should not be allowed to fruit the first summer after planting.

    What is a rootstock?

    A rootstock is the portion of the tree that grows in the ground. Attached to it is the scion. It is the rootstock that determines the ultimate height that the tree will grow into, and also its suitability to soil conditions. The scion is the actual known variety being grown. This is an identical copy of its original mother tree.

    Can I order rootstocks / scions / trees online?

    Yes – All our sales go through our online shop.
