YouGarden Duo Fruit Apple Bare Root Tree – Bramley & Braeburn
Apple Braeburn and Bramley Duo Tree – This incredible duo of fruit trees have been meticulously grafted by highly skilled nurserymen, to create 2 different trees growing on one rootstock. What’s more, the rootstocks are dwarfing meaning that your trees will always remain compact. You will get 2 different varieties of fruit from 1 tree so are perfect for anyone who loves the idea of picking their own home-grown fresh fruit, but has limited space. Each of the varieties will produce bumper crops of delicious full-sized fruit. Because they are already trained into a V shape, they are perfect for growing up a wall. Variety Braeburn Apple: The UK’s most popular eating apple variety by far and will easily grow and flourish superbly in your garden. The crisp and juicy white-fleshed fruits have what is considered by most to be the perfect sweet/tangy flavour balance, literally providing a flavour explosion with every mouthful. The gorgeous fruit will be ready to pick fresh from your tree by mid-October each season and will store well until the end of January if kept chilled but frost-free. Crops: October. Bramley Apple: Considered The King Of Cooking Apples by respected chefs and professional fruit growers, it is the world’s best known and favourite cooking apple, standing the test of time through over 200 years. It is considered supreme because its fruits have the perfect acidic flavour required for use in the kitchen and the almost pure-white flesh becomes incredibly light and fluffy when cooked. Bramley is an incredibly heavy cropper once established with high-quality fruits that will store through the winter months pick them in early October (before they get over-ripe) and store them cold but frost-free for use until January.

Place your tree in a su y position for the best crops. Care Information Apply a slow-release fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone, in early spring, and mulch to retain moisture. Water regularly, and don’t let the soil dry out if planted in pots. Established trees don’t require radical pruning; just take off any diseased, dying and damaged branches. Look at the overall shape and aim for an open structure of branches and remove any that cross over so they don’t damage each other. Hang wasp traps in trees and harvest crops as soon as they ripen. Avoid leaving windfalls or overripe fruit on the ground. Don’t forget the tree guards, as rabbits can strip the bark overnight. Shop amazing garden deals right here at Appliance Deals.
