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 Peasgood Nonsuch is M9 which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.
Raised in Grantham, 1850’s. A variety unusual in that it really can be attributed to either dessert or cooking, being equally good for either and a valuable garden tree to have.
