The rootstock for all our apple trees, including Charles Ross, is the most vigorous available. We try to offer as many apple varieties as we can on M25 rootstock, which will produce the standard trees of a traditional orchard, where they would be planted between 6 and 8 metres apart. Please refer to our size guide for details.
All our apple trees are bare root. At the height of the lifting season there may be up to a month?s delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders for Charles Ross apple trees taken from March to September are confirmed in September ready for dispatch from November. Please note there is an overall minimum order size of £50.
