Malus angustifolia


SKU: N/A Categories: ,

Orders are for the Fall Season


Fall Season our trees are not yet dormant. As such, we ship the plants in containers.

  We do not recommend fall plantings for zone 5.


If you are planting in USDA Plant zone 6 your order will ship out in mid October due to high demand of our trees, our first few shipping weeks are full.

Ideally it would be best to plant young trees coming from Florida in late September.

You will want to protect your young trees from any frosts and freezes or delay shipping to our spring bareroot/dormant season.


Fall orders are shipped by USDA Plant zones.

Plant Zones 6: late September
Plant Zones 7-8: October–November
Plant Zones 8-9: November– early December

Pruning Corrective pruning may be necessary as the tree matures.
Fertilization Do not fertilize at planting. Once the trees are established, fertilize in early spring (Mar-April) as growth begins. Do not fertilize in the fall, which could promote late season tender growth that can be damaged by early frosts.
Watering Newly planted trees should be watered regularly. This is the most critical step in the establishment of your new trees. Please see the Watering section under "How to plant and grow" in our Learning Center.
