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

Selected at RHS Gardens Wisley in 1947, probably a Cox’s or Sunset seedling and considered superior to either parent. The name refers to the size of the apples, which are small, not the growth.
