Crab Apple Bonsai - Malus pumila - Bonsai Material
The crab apple just has to be one of the most popular flowering species in bonsai cultivation. Spectacular and reliable flowering (small pink/white delicately scented) and beautiful autumn fruit (red apples the size of marbles). Very hardy but appreciates a little protection from hot summer sun. In summer remove overly large leaves at any time. Fertilise from mid-summer with 0-10-10 Nitrogen free fertiliser. The winter image can be tidied up once the leaves have dropped but take care not to remove too many of the large fat buds, those make the flowers. Re-pot every 3-4 years in a good moisture holding compost like our No1 or No2. The species is fully frost hardy and needs no winter protection.
The best big crab apple of 2018. This amazing tree has made over a meter and a half of growth over summer and thise nice thick branches now need to be placed with wire in order to fix in position next summer. Plenty of little spots to carve over the winter too. This is going to make a craking bonsai tree with a little patience and skill.
