Wedding Bouquet is a very pretty crab apple and a wonderful addition for any garden and excellent for the smaller garden or large pot!

A charming bushy tree and easy to grow and disease resistant. RHS Order of Merit.

All Crab Apple trees are self-fertile and will thrive in city gardens and are helpful for pollution. To please them, do give them a sunny position to encourage the best display of blossom and fruit. Very accommodating, they are happy in most soil types including clay.

When planting, incorporate well-rotten compost into planting hole. Remember to stake firmly. Light pruning in winter, removing any dead or diseased branches.

An added asset is they are generally a good pollinator for domestic apples which is very useful when space is a factor.

Light pruning in winter, removing any dead or diseased branches.
