Plum-Leaved Crab Apple

  • Also known as Malus prunifolia, it is a species of crabapple tree known by the common names plum leaf crab apple, plum-leaved apple, pear-leaf crabapple, Chinese apple and Chinese crabapple.
  • It is native to China and is grown elsewhere for use as an ornamental tree or as rootstock.
  • It reaches from between 3 and 8 meters tall and bears white flowers and yellow or red fruit.
SOIL
  • It is best to use normal soil, or a mix of compost and ordinary soil – do not use all compost as it dries out too easily.
  • Put some large pebbles or broken clay pot pieces in the bottom to allow drainage.
  • A decorative mulch on top of the soil will help keep moisture in.
  • The key thing when growing fruit trees in a container is not to let the soil dry out.
FERTILIZER
  • Fertilize with regular tree plant food.
LIGHT
  • Full or partial sun.
WATER
  • Water at least twice a week, and probably daily during sunny warm weather.
  • If the tree looks unhappy or unhealthy, the cause is often stress brought on by insufficient watering.
  • The smaller the container, the more important it will be to water regularly.
