Apple tree ‘Sweet Summer‘ - Bare-rooted - Hardy plant

Malus domestica 'Sweet Summer'
Sweet apples from our own soil
A sweet summer. That's what we get with the deliciously sweet apples from the ‘Sweet Summer‘. The unique apple tree bears apples that ripen over a period of approximately eight weeks until we see the yellow/orange fruits appear! Great for in the garden, on a patio, roof terrace or balcony.We supply the apple tree ‘Sweet Summer‘ as bare-root stock — just the bare branch and roots. The branch is freshly removed from the soil. This gives it additional strength, enabling it to branch out faster than it would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical.The fruit tree blossoms in spring. That's when it reveals its lovely white-pink flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting. We prune the apple tree in winter, provided that it isn't frozen. The apple tree grows in well-drained soil that we keep nice and moist. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.

Seasonal effects

The appearance of fruit trees and shrubs changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

Planting+

An apple tree will thrive in fertile garden soil. Do improve poor soil with a mix of well-rotted manure and garden compost. Plant the tree in a spot in full sun.
An apple tree really does thrive in a garden. Soak this tree's roots in a bucket of lukewarm water overnight prior to planting. Dig a large hole and loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork. Plant your apple tree at the right depth and spread the roots around the hole - they should be around 15-25 cm below soil level. Place a support stake firmly into the ground next to the roots. Fill the hole with soil and heel the tree well in. Water generously immediately after planting.

The apple tree can be planted in a pot

You can plant the tree in the ground, where eventually it will become a rather large tree. It is also possible to plant it in a large pot or planter and grow it as a smaller tree.

Care+

We advise a mulch of compost and granulated cow manure around the trunk of the tree in the winter. Water extra during dry spells. Thin out the fruits in August by removing the smallest apples so that all the energy goes to the largest fruit. The apples can be harvested from October.

Apple trees can be pruned

Prune apple trees from November through to March as long as there is no frost. Fruit trees continue to grow from the top, so if you want a tree that is not so tall we would advise topping it off. Most apple trees grow short and strong side shoots on which the apples develop – you can stimulate their growth by cutting back the main stems 30%, to right above a bud. Thereafter, cut side shoots back to 3-6 buds and you will then see the fruit develop.

Extra+

Apples are good for you and contain lots of vitamin C.
