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 Greensleeves apple trees is M9 which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.

Greensleeves is one of the best and most popular garden apple trees; Greensleeves was introduced in 1977 from EMRS in Kent, and is a cross between James Grieve x Golden Delicious. In character it resembles a better version of the latter.
