Crab Apple Bonsai - Malus pumila - Bonsai Tree
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.

We were very lucky to get our hands on just a few of these a couple of years ago. Nursery grown this an amazing crab apple tree. One of the stockiest little crabs we have seen and with a good taper in it's trunk too. There is a little attention needed to some pruning scars and the branch structure needs development. We have been working on these trees and they are coming along at an alarming rate.
