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 Grenadier is M9 which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.
Grenadier’s origins are unknown but a famous early cooker and usually the first culinary apple fit for use.
