Malus domestica (Apple)
From Chris Murphy writing in the Sunday East Kent Digital Edition of 24/10/2010:-
The Campaign for the Protection of Rural England reports that in the last decade the UK has lost 31% of its apple orchard land; in the last 25 years more than 1/2 our apple orchards have disappeared. Between 1946 and 2003, 92% of orchard land disappeared in Kent county, and from 1999 to 2003, the net loss per year was 1.8%. Every year Britons consume 680,000 tonnes of apples, but just 1 in 3 apples are British, despite the fact the climate in the UK can support 2,300 varieties. Common Ground said "Since the 60's, Kent lost 80% of its orchard land. The reason so many have been lost is because the economics haven't been working because so many superstores have been buying the cheapest, and importing them from Chile, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand at the height of our UK season from July to March. Many varieties are suitable for short-term storage, making UK produced apples available for much of the year."Sally Roger, of the Brogdale Collections in Faversham, said: "Thousands of acres of orchards and many heritage varieties of apples, pears, plums and cherries have disappeared from Kent over the last few decades as shoppers have demanded more perfect looking fruit all year round from supermarkets."

 

To ensure that the apple blossom is pollinated by the bees, then another apple tree from the same or adjacent flowering group ( Group 1 with Group 1 or 2, Group 2 with Group 1 or Group 3, etc ) should be present within a short distance. Further details in Introduction Page.

"Grow Your Own Fruit" by Ken Muir,
(www.kenmuir.co.uk) Honeypot Farm, Weeley Heath, Clacton-On-Sea, Essex. CO16 9BJ Tel: 01255 830181 provides the information on cultural practices in a clear and concise manner. It is strongly recommended that this booklet is read before growing Top Fruit or Soft Fruit, so that correct plants for your soil can be purchased and give a good yield.

There are further details concerning Soil, Sun Aspect and Soil Moisture levels in the Top Fruit Page of the Plants Section, together with the apple rootstock details of M.9, M.25, M.26, M.27 and MM.106 that determine the potential natural height of the apple tree.

The Apple Gallery has thumbnail pictures of apple shapes available in container grown form for the following uses:-

  • 2 feet (60 cm) high StepOver from M.27 rootstock. Plant alongside paths and beds
  • 6 feet (180 cm) high Patio Fruit Tree from M.27 rootstock. Use in pots on patios for any size garden.
  • 6 feet high Bush from M.27 rootstock. Plant as fruit bushes in the garden instead of 6 feet high ornamental shrubs.
  • 6 feet high Cordon from M.9 rootstock. Train in any size garden onto 6 feet high support structure on fences or walls.
  • 6 feet high Espalier from MM.106. Train in any size garden onto 6 feet high support structure on fences or walls.
  • 6 feet high Fan from MM.106 rootstock. Train in any size garden onto 6 feet high support structure on fences or walls.
  • 15 feet (450 cm)high Bush from M.26 rootstock. Plant as 15 feet wide tree or lawn bush in large gardens.
  • 18 feet (540 cm) high Bush from MM.106 rootstock. Plant as 18 feet wide tree or lawn bush in large gardens.
  • 18 feet high Half Standard from MM.106 rootstock. Plant as classic lawn tree for large gardens.

This plant gallery has thumbnail pictures of apple shapes available in bare root form for the following uses:-

  • Maiden M.27 for training or hedging
  • Maiden M.9 for training or hedging
  • Maiden M.26 for training or hedging
  • Maiden MM.106 for training or hedging
  • Maiden M.25 for training or hedging
  • 6 feet high Bush from M.27 rootstock for use as a shrub
  • 6 feet high Cordon from M.9 rootstock. Train in any size garden onto 6 feet high support structure on fences or walls.
  • 10 feet (300 cm) high Bush from M.9 rootstock. Plant as fruit bushes in the garden instead of 10 feet high ornamental shrubs.
  • 15 feet high Bush from M.26 rootstock. Plant as 15 feet wide tree or lawn bush in large gardens.
  • 18 feet high Half Standard from MM.106 rootstock. Plant as medium-sized trees for large gardens/orchards.
  • 18 feet high Bush from MM.106 rootstock. Plant as 18 feet wide tree in large gardens.
  • 30 feet (900 cm) high Straight Lead from M.25 rootstock. Plant as Standard tree for large gardens.

Cultivation details and other Apple, Pear and Cherry Trees in Top Fruit Plant List.

"Minarettes® are slender, columnar fruit trees which bear their fruits on short spurs along the length of a vertical stem rather than on long spreading branches. They are perfect for today's smaller gardens because they can be planted as close as 60-90cm (2-3ft) apart as well as being ideal for growing in tubs on patios or balconies. When mature, Minarette® trees are 1.8-2.4m (6-8ft) tall and crop prolifically.   A large range of apples, pears, plums, gages, damsons and cherries are available as Minarettes®" from Ken Muir.
THERE IS THEREFORE A TOP FRUIT TREE SUITABLE FOR ANYWHERE IN ANY SIZE GARDEN OR IN THE HOUSE INSTEAD OF PLANTING OTHER DECIDUOUS TREE.

Massonia
"Natives of the Cape of Good Hope. Should be potted from September to November in a compost consisting of equal parts sand, peat, and leaf-mould, and be plunged in a cold frame until growth has commenced, when they may be transferred to the cool greenhouse. Water should be given in moderation during the growing season and cease altogether when the plants are at rest.
Propagate by offsets removed at the time of potting and treated as ordinary bulbs." from The culture of bulbs, bulbous plants and tubers made plain by Sir J.L. Cotter. Published by Hutchinson & Co.

"Massonia genus is almost always found growing in poor soil, in areas with hot and dry summers in South Africa.
Massonia echinata with leaves prostrate; flowers yellow or white fading to pink and flowering in May-Jul in the Eastern Cape Province.
Must have sandy, well-drained, soil, and plants will not withstand any frost. The bulbs should be set some 2-3 inches (5-7.5 cms) deep in the soil, in a sunny location, and should not be exposed to temperatures below 45F (7C). After flowering and the foliage starts to die, they must be given a dry and warm resting period. The leaves will exist for quite a long time and thus it might be necessary to withdraw moisture in order to induce dormancy. The plants having large leaves should be spaced at least 10 inches (25 cms) apart." from Bulbs Volume II, I-Z with Appendixes and Indexes by John E. Bryan. Published by Christopher Helm (Publishers) Ltd in 1989. ISBN 0-88192-101-7.

Naturalize -
The practice of growing certain plants under as natural conditions as possible.
For example; daffodils are said to be naturalized when they are planted in grass and left to look after themselves.
The term is also used to describe plants from foreign countries which have established themselves so well in the country into which they have been introduced that they behave like native plants; and are able to maintain themselves without the aid of the gardener.

Climber -
Grow Ramblers (Ra) or
Scramblers (Sc) on supports on House-Walls and elsewhere.
Grow Self-Clingers - like
Aerial Roots (Ar),
Sucker Pads (Sp),
Twining (Tw),
Twining Leaf-Stem (Twl) or
Twining Tendrils (TwT) - on garden walls, chainlink fences, trellis, pergolas or fedges, but not for House-Walls.
