Crab apples are some of the finest garden trees for year-round interest - spring blossom, super foliage and brightly coloured fruit in autumn make these a must for every small garden. There are a huge number of hybrids with different colours and growth patterns, but do not overlook the species which are highly attractive and deserve to be more widely grown. Very tough and hardy, these will grow on any soil which is not waterlogged. Make a super windbreak or edging to an orchard.
Grown in Yorkshire.
With a nursery of over 200 acres here in Pickering, in addition to roses, fruit trees and hedging we also grow a large range of ornamental and woodland trees. The species we offer vary from traditional woodland or native trees, to ornamental trees suitable for a small garden, offering a choice of blossom, foliage colour and berries to provide year round interest.
Giving specific height sizes for trees is a little like asking how long a peice of string is. Soil type, aspect and geographical location, as well as care and feeding, can make a huge difference to the ultimate height a tree can attain. As an example, we always find that the heights specified by the RHS (based in the south of the UK) are about 25% taller than we would expect the same tree to reach in Yorkshire. Instead we prefer to use the relative terms of 'small', 'medium' and 'large', to help you narrow down your choice.
