Please Note

These seeds should ideally be sown this season. All our packets have ‘Sow by Date’ guidance on them, this is the date the seeds should be sown in order to achieve the highest rate of germination. You will still see the same high-quality plants if sowing in seasons after the ‘Sow by Date’ but may see a reduction in germination rate

One of the most popular apples, producing golden-skinned fruit with a rich sweet flavour. Eaten fresh or cooked, home-grown ‘Golden Delicious’ apples taste so much better than supermarket-bought apples! This versatile apple also stores well for several months.

Trained as a mini espalier apple tree, it makes a striking feature grown against a wall or fence. It’s also a good choice for smaller gardens that don’t have space for bush fruit trees. The beautiful spring blossom is a big attraction for bees and other pollinators.

Apple ‘Golden Delicious' is in pollination group 4. It is not self-fertile, so will need another apple tree from groups 3 or 4 planted nearby for pollination in order to produce fruit.

How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out.

Can’t plant straight away?

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist.

Planting tips and hints:

Before planting your tree, put up horizontal support wires against a wall or fence. The wires should be spaced 35cm apart vertically.

Plant your tree in front of the support wires, leaning slightly back towards them.

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well.

First year after planting

Winter or early spring
  • Prune the leader (the main central stem) to just above a healthy bud, above the height of any side branches. This bud will produce a shoot that becomes the new leader.
Summer
  • Tie in the new leader shoot to the support wires.
  • Leave the side shoots to grow at approximately 45 deg angles to the stem until late summer, then gently lower them and tie them in to the support wires so that they lie horizontally.
  • Cut back any new shoots growing from the side shoots to 3-4 leaves above the basal cluster. (The basal cluster is a group of 2-4 leaves growing close together at the base of a shoot.)

Following years

Late summer, once the lower third of any new shoots has turned woody
  • Once your espalier tree has produced the number of horizontal branches that you want to maintain, cut off the central leader completely, above the highest horizontal branches.
  • Cut back all side shoots growing from the horizontal branches to 3-4 leaves above the basal cluster (see notes above).
  • Remove any overly vigorous upright shoots, and any shoots growing in the wrong direction.
Winter

After several years, well-established espaliers may produce long side shoots from the horizontal branches which take up too much space and only fruit at the tips. To renovate, prune in winter, cutting back only one-third of the side shoots in any one year. Cut side shoots back to stubs 3-5cm long, cutting just above a bud.
