    Apple Bramley Seedling (Malus domestica 'Bramley's Seedling') is the most popular cooking apple, its fruit is greenish-yellow flushed with light brown/orange-red stripes. Bramley Seedling apples have a strong acid flavour and shiny skin. They have creamy flesh that is juicy and full of mouthwatering flavour. Apple Bramley's Seedling trees grow to around 4-5 metres after 10 years. The cropping period for Bramely's Seedling is mid season (October). This apple tree prefers to be planted in clay, sandy or loam soil types and positioned in full sun.

    Apple Bramley's Seedling is an overall excellent cooking variety that cannot be faulted! It cooks to a smooth puree that is fluffy and light and can also be more slowly baked for tarts and pies. These apples can produce a delicious single-fruit juice or will make a full sharp cider.

    The crop is ready in mid October and can be stored right through winter. Bramley Seedling is a is a triploid apple, so it requires two different pollinating apple trees or one self fertile apple tree in the groups A, B or C.

    Planting Advice

    Our pot grown Apple Bramley's Seedling trees can be planted all year-round. To aid the trees growth more effectively, sprinkle root grow when planting. Here are some tips for planting your apple tree:

    1. Dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 3x as wide 
    2. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost
    3. Place the roots of the tree into the hole, fill it with your soil mix and firm around gently (avoid banking the collar of the tree)

    Aftercare Advice

    Keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons.

    • If planting in spring or summer, water well for the first few months and increase watering if there are periods of hot or dry weather.
    • If planting in autumn, you may only need to water a little.  

    If your area is prone to rabbits, use a rabbit guard.

    Pruning Advice

    It is important to prune your apple tree for the first few years to ensure a healthy, goblet-like shape.

    • Remove the lowest laterals
    • Pune back other branches by a third of their length (formative pruning)
    • Remove any shoots growing out of the trunk to maintain a clear stem 
    • Rmove crossing, diseased or damaged branches
    • Remove some of the larger branches to open up the canopy. 

    Formative pruning should take place in early spring.

    General pruning should take place between November and March.

    1. Select Root Type

    Bare Root 

    Bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the planting season but they can be pre-ordered in summer to guarantee your stock. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options and the cheapest way to plant a hedge.

    Root Ball 

    Root ball plants are also seasonal stock as they can only be lifted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). These plants are scooped out of the ground like an ice-cream using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks.  They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly. Root ball hedging plants give an instant effect and are a cheaper alternative to instant trough grown hedging. 

    Pot Grown 

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and they are our mose convenient option of hedging plants. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements. From small 2L shrubs to large 15L extra tall hedging, there will be a pot grown plant for any garden type. 

    Instant Hedging 

    Our Instant Hedging is grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season to create a dramatic, instant hedge effect. If you are looking for a quick fix or an instant impact, Instant Trough Grown hedging is the solution for you.
