About Malus

Malus are small or medium-sized deciduous trees that display an abundance of delicate but showy flowers during the spring, with delicious ornamental or edible fruit during the autumn. Malus also produce stunning foliage colour during the autumn, producing a free flowering habit and semi-spreading shape. These divine trees are best suited to an architectural, courtyard, informal or cottage garden and make a highly attractive statement piece in the garden. You should expect to see Malus grow to an approximate height and spread of 3m (10’).

How to plant Malus

Malus should be planted in well-drained soil of loam, clay, sand or loam within an acidic, neutral or alkaline PH balance. A position of full sun will suit them best but they will tolerate an area of part shade if necessary. You can plant Malus at any time so long as the soil is workable and not effected by frost - middle to late spring is considered the perfect time. Plant at the same depth as the root ball with plenty of space to grow and expand. Water thoroughly to settle the soil into place.

How to care for Malus

During the first year of growth, Malus should be watered generously once a week. Once established, your watering schedule can be reduced, although care should be taken to provide extra water in periods of drought. If planted in good soil, Malus should not require additional feed. If growth is a little underdeveloped or you notice poor foliage, flowers or fruit you may need to feed. Malus do not require pruning but you may wish to trim your tree to improve its overall shape and size.

How to propagate Malus

It is possible to propagate Malus by seed sown in autumn or by chip budding during late summer. Alternatively, grafting can be carried out during the midwinter.
