Buy apricot 'Tomcot' apricot Tomcot: Produces larger than avereage apricots

This plant is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: will tolerate most soils, except very chalky or badly drained
  • Rate of growth: slow growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy (borderline)

    The fruits of this interesting apricot are larger than average, and as they ripen, their skins turn orange with a strong red blush. It tends to be reliably hardy in most regions of the UK (provided they are planted in freely draining soils), but for best results, plant it in a warm, sunny position (against a south-facing wall would be ideal). Grafted onto St Julien A rootstock, it is a self-fertile plant, so it does not need a pollination partner to produce fruit.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Protect the blossom from frost, and prune in summer to reduce the risk of disease.
