Cordon Apple trees are a good choice for restricted areas and a fence or wall. They can be grown at a 45degree angle, or upright. The rootstock we use for our cordon is M9 which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.
Remains well known in Norfolk, where it was raised, this very long lived tree is a cooking variety that was once widely valued. Sometimes known simply as ‘Harvey’ and also noted for it’s attractive blossom.
