Couldn’t recommend and rate Cullen Nurseries more highly! They supplied excellent specimen shrubs and looked after all planting at a very competitive rate, not to mention a very speedy turn around. A super family run Irish business! Thanks Caitriona & Rob. M

So happy to have chosen Cullen Nurseries to supply, plant and fertilize our new Red Robin hedge. Great customer service from Caitriona and really pleased with the very professional job Rob & his colleague did planting them. Pics don't do them justice - this was the day they were planted - 61 x 2l Red Robins - really healthy looking plants. Delighted and looking forward to seeing them grow over the years. Thank you!

Description

Apple Trees

To ensure good pollination and therefore a good crop of apples, it is essential to grow two or more different cultivars from the same Flowering Group or adjacent Flowering Groups. Some cultivars are triploid – they have sterile pollen and need two other cultivars for good pollination; therefore, always grow at least two other non-triploid cultivars with each one.

The ideal position for apple trees is a sunny well sheltered site away from frost pockets. Avoid poorly drained or shallow soils. There are varieties that will grow in colder or damper areas but mostly, apple trees do well in full sun. Remember to secure your newly planted apple tree with Timber Stake and Tree Tie.

You can watch Rob Plant an Apple Tree with our youngest son, a great way to make memories and encourage kids to grow trees. You can also purchase ornamental apple trees that produce small fruits but are plentiful in flowers. The apples from Crab Apple Trees are not suitable for eating.

  3. Gala – mid to late season apples with yellow skin that is flushed and striped with red. Spring flowers are a nice pink and wite blossom.
  4. Boskoop – a desert cultivator triplod. These trees are more suitable for colder wetter areas. Skin is greenish yellow flushed with red/orange. Will do well in full sun or partial shade.
  5. Cox’s Orange Pippin – a desert cultivator producing firm & juicy apples. Prefer milder areas in good soil on a warm sunny site. Produces a medium sized fruit.
  6. Golden Delicious – Great pollinator for other apple tress. Fruits are greenish yellow turning more yellow as they age. Apples are sweet when well ripened. Trees produce a heavy regular crop when planted in moist well drained soil, in full sun or partial shade.
  7. Bramley – Cooking Apple that produces huge crops of large green apples with a light red stripe. Apples have an excellent flavour and high acidity. Bramley are a triploid and needs 2 pollinating partners.
