Stepover trees are used primarily for edging a border or pathway or to divide the kitche/vegetable garden. These very tiny trees are just 18” in height with two side laterals from the main stem forming a capital ‘T’ shape. The stepover tree is an ormamental addition to your garden and these trees are grown on the smallest avaailable rootstock, M27. Plant 120-150cm’s apart.

Spartan has been enormously popular in the UK for so many years it might come as a surprise to learn that this is actually an American apple, raised 1926 from a Mc Intosh cross. One of the top 10 most satisfactory garden or orchard apples.
