Buy Malus 'Adirondack' crab apple ( syn. Malus Admiration ): A superb tree for a small garden

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

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This is a very pretty but edible crab apple, that makes an excellent addition to smaller gardens. In spring, it produces a mass of large waxy white flowers which emerge from carmine red buds, just as the fresh green leaves start to appear. From late summer, these are followed by the edible bronze-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.

An excellent, healthy tree


I only have a small garden so this tree is ideal. It won't spread too much but will provide attractive flowers and berries, and will be good for wildlife. It established well after planting and had lots of berries. It is now showing fresh, spring growth.




Tree just right for a small garden


I wanted a small tree to add some structure It just fits the bill. It is difficult to find something that does this without growing too large. Blossom and later small fruits, ideal.

I would like to plant two Malus Adirondack/Admiration trees in my small garden, which has clay soil and gets quite dry in summer. How far away from the house do I need to plant to ensure I avoid future risks with roots and subsidence? I want to plant the trees about 23 feet away from the house. Is this a safe distance? I know this variety is a dwarf stock but some sites say it can grow up to 20ft eventually.


A plants roots will usually only grow a little bit bigger than the height and spread of the crown, so as this variety has an eventual height and spread of 4m, it should be safe to plant it 23ft away from the house.


Trees, the showmen of the winter garden

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 sc
