Dumelow's Seedling was originally raised in Shakerston, near Ashby-de-la-Zouche, by a Richard Dumeller. Supposedly from a pip of Northern Greening. It found its way to London via Gopsall Hall, and was exhibited in 1818 as Dumelow's Crab. It was promptly renamed Wellington, in honour of the great man. It's also - confusingly - known as Normanton Wonder. Awarded RHS AGM in 1993.

We supply apple trees on the most vigorous rootstocks available. They were created specifically for use in the UK and produce healthy, heavy cropping trees for our weather conditions. M106 produces a good garden sized apple tree, between 3 and 4 metres tall. Grown as a free standing tree it won't need staking, although initially best to use a cane to support your new plant. M25 rootstock will produce the 4m plus 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 apple trees taken from March to September are confirmed prior to dispatch from November. Please note there is an overall minimum order size of £50.
