Description

Some columnar dwarf trees grow in containers and can make an attractive entrance when grown beside a doorway or gate. Their narrow, upright growth habit means that columnar trees are perfect for landscaping small and large yards alike. So exactly what are columnar fruit trees? Although growers are working to create a variety of columnar fruit trees, apple trees are currently the only type on the market. You can buy peach, cherry, and plum trees that have an upright, narrow growth habit, but they aren’t true columnar trees. The ‘Moonglow’ juniper tree is well-known for its neat, columnar growing pattern, attractive cone-shaped form, and dense evergreen foliage. The branches, with their soft, blue-green foliage, grow in a fastigiate way. As the tree grows, it retains its compact, columnar appearance and can eventually reach 20 ft. (6 m) tall.

The narrow columnar fruit trees will do just that by filling your small garden space without crowding it! Growing them is easy, and you’ll be rewarded with fresh fruit when they bloom. The common name of the flagpole cherry tree refers to its tall, skinny growth habit. The flowering Japanese cherry tree fills your yard with large, fragrant, semi-double pinkish-white flowers in the spring. The tree’s leaves are bright green and turn spectacular hues of orange and yellow in autumn. It also produces small, purple-red fruits. The tall, slender growth habit is more pronounced in young trees. As the cherry blossom tree matures, it takes on a more vase-like shape. Everything you need to know about growing columnar fruit trees, including care and selection of species and varieties If fruits are produced the first summer after planting there is no need to remove them as you would with an ordinary tree. Super columns are capable of fruiting from the first year and, depending on the variety will often settle down for regular heavy cropping from the second or third year onwards. Full cropping is often achieved by the fourth year. plant to give the most exemplary results available. We firmly believe that only the very healthiestWe can confidently say this is the ‘new garden Cox’ but unlike this classic vintage variety, Christmas Pippin is very easy to grow and produces reliable, heavy crops countrywide. The eating quality is exceptional, characterised by a sweet and aromatic flavour, lovely perfume and a very pleasant honey after-taste. The fruits are crisp and juicy with a melt in the mouth texture that makes each bite increasingly more pleasurable. Christmas Pippin is a ‘foundling’ having been spotted by a fruit expert by the side of a busy road. A natural seedling of rare and special qualities, most likely arising from a discarded apple core ... perhaps from the very fine Cox’s Orange Pippin itself, with which we dare to compare this very special new introduction. Season: early Oct - Dec. Requires a pollinator (such as Herefordshire Russet). This means that when purchasing these trees, you will be receiving saplings rather than seeds. C ordon apple trees continue to give fruits for up to 20 years; however, their products may be lesser compared to other fruit trees. They can survive in hardy zones between four to eight, making them well-suited for moderate climates. Varieties of Corden Apple Trees 1. Supercolumns

Most (but not all) apple and pear varieties can be trained in this way, so the range of potential varieties is much wider than for Ballerinas, and includes dessert and culinary varieties. This also means that flavours and yields are potentially better than for Ballerina apple varieties. Plant Spacing: The narrow, upright growth of columnar apple trees allows for planting in small areas. When planting more than one tree, space them two to three feet apart.Apples need pollen from a different type of apple tree to set fruit successfully, so you’ll need at least two trees of two separate varieties to provide cross-pollination. Plant the trees within 100 feet (30 m.) of one another so bees and other pollinators will visit both trees. Columnar fruit trees grow well in the ground; allow at least 2 feet (61 cm.) between each tree. You can plant these fruit trees in large containers too, such as whiskey barrels. Columnar Fruit Tree Care An improved sport of Braeburn with better flavour and colour and more suited to the British climate. The fruits are crisp and aromatic and have excellent keeping qualities. Heavy cropping but best grown in the south as it needs a long growing season. Produces a compact tree - ideal for small gardens. Season: Dec - March. It is also worth taking a look at the winter-hardiness of the columnar fruit tree. If you want to plant a columnar fruit tree in a pot, it should be winter-hardy. Otherwise, you will need a space in the house to overwinter it during the cold time of year. The fruit trees will use the support of this structure throughout their life, so it’s worth investing the time to create a well-built structure. These initial efforts to make the structure strong and dependable will help your trees thrive better without constant attention. Caring for Your Columnar Apple Tree

Summer pruning (June to August) is suitable for pruning columnar apple and pear trees. In the case of stone fruit trees (plums, apricots, cherries), the ideal time for pruning is just after harvest. Growing columnar fruit trees in pots The pear variety ‘Decora’ also remains small completely naturally. Columnar cherry trees and columnar damson trees do grow very compact, however they push out heavily in width after a few years at the latest. So you should always prune them in good time to keep them in shape. Keep the side shoots consistently short and, in doing so, strengthen the central shoot. Shorten fruit shoots which have grown too long to a length of about 40 cm every year. All these columnar forms make an attractive feature in the garden, particularly if planted in groups. Columnar trees in pots are also prone to frost, so place them in your garage or cellar during the winter. Make sure the temperature drops to about 45 degrees Fahrenheit regularly to help the tree become more fruitful. TransplantingThe ‘Decora’ pear is a plant with crunchy, sweet fruit for the garden or on the balcony. ‘Concorde’ is a very robust pear variety. It likes particularly warm conditions. The pears are ready to harvest from mid-September. Plant one of your columnars in fertile, well-draining soil. Then space the other two trees about two to three feet away. Cross-pollination needs aside, you may plant more columnar varieties in the same manner. Watering
