Doctor Hogg was a renowned Victorian apple enthusiast, publishing "The Herefordshire Pomona" and "British Pomology" at the peak of British apple enthusiasm. The RHS still awards a Hogg Medal for fruit in his memory; he was by all accounts a really remarkable man. This apple is a fitting tribute to him - a really cracking cooker, which won the RHS First Class Certificate in 1878. It was thought to have originally been a Calville Blanc seedling, raised by the head gardener at Leonardslee in Horsham - to this day a wonderful garden.

See our section on Pollination Groups to help you select your apple trees.
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 Coronation 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.
