  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Flower colour: white
  • Other features: rounded, yellow fruits

    This is the tree to buy if you dont just grow crab-apples for their late spring flowers, as the larger than average fruits of 'Pink Glow' appear earlier than most, and are one of the best for making jellies and jams. That is not to say that the prolific display the simple white flowers provide is anything less than fabulous. This round-headed tree, grows to a manageable size, so it can be grown in smaller gardens, and because of its two main seasons of interest, it makes an excellent specimen.

  • 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.
