The rootstock for all our apple trees, including Brownlee's Russet, 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. M106 - or MM106 - will give you a good sized garden tree up to 4m and not requiring staking. 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 your order for Brownlee's Russet 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 in September ready for dispatch from November. Please note there is an overall minimum order size of £50.
