Fruitscaping™ with Apple Trees

Add a touch of classic charm to your landscape with the majestic Apple Trees in your Fruitscaping™ endeavors. These trees not only offer the joy of homegrown, delicious fruit but also serve as stunning landscape features throughout the year.

Apple trees prefer well-drained soil, rich in organic matter. The incorporation of compost or well-rotted manure into your soil can significantly improve its fertility and structure, leading to stronger, healthier trees. These trees perform best in a slightly acidic to neutral pH range.

A layer of organic mulch around the base of your apple tree can help conserve soil moisture, suppress weeds, and slowly contribute to soil fertility as it decomposes. Mulching also aids in maintaining a cooler root environment in summer and provides a degree of frost protection in winter.

Apple trees present an impressive diversity in size, flavor profiles, and ripening times. From the tart ‘Granny Smith’ to the sweet and crisp ‘Honeycrisp,’ there’s an apple variety for every palate. Whether you’re seeking fresh eating apples, varieties for baking, or those best suited for cider, our selection of apple trees offers an array for your picking pleasure.

Their size and growth habit make apple trees wonderful shade trees, and their stunning spring blossoms add an unbeatable visual appeal to any garden. If you’re dealing with space constraints, dwarf or semi-dwarf varieties, which are well-suited to smaller gardens and containers, can be an excellent choice. You can also try your hand at espalier techniques to create a living fence or wall.

With the added joy of the birds and pollinators they attract, apple trees are truly a delightful addition to your Fruitscaping™ journey. The excitement of watching your trees flower, set fruit, and fill with juicy apples ready for harvest is a rewarding experience that resonates with gardeners of all ages.

Embrace the art of Fruitscaping™ with Apple Trees, and embark on a journey from planting and care to the rewarding crunch of your own homegrown apples. It’s a garden adventure that satisfies both your taste buds and your love for a beautiful landscape.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
