A very pretty crab apple, that makes an excellent addition to smaller gardens. In spring, it produces a mass of ivory white flowers, just as the fresh green leaves start to appear. From late summer, these are followed by dark red fruits, which remain until well into winter. Perfect for a small garden or large pot.
- Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Removed dead, diseased and crossing branches while the tree is dormant.

Trees are the winter showmen of the garden, coming into their own just as the days are getting shorter and the light levels are falling. By November many will have dropped their leaves to reveal a fine winter tracery above a textured trunk, providing a scRead full article
