If you’re like me and always trying to combat climate change, why not try planting a tree? A Crab Apple Tree.
If you already have an apple tree or two, the addition of a crab apple tree for sale will be a perfect pollinating partner to help your apples reach their full potential. Likewise, if you make your own cider, a few crab apples alongside your batch of regular apples will give the cider an extra special zing.
If you are planning to take the plunge, your best bet is to buy your tree from a well-established grower and retailer such as Chris Bowers & Sons. They can not only satisfy your fruit tree needs, but also provide guides for growers.
They are high in pectin, which means they can even play a part in lowering cholesterol so long as they are consumed as part of a healthy diet. Crab apple trees have a lot to offer, not to mention the beautiful blossom that appears each year to herald the spring. And let’s not forget, crab apple trees are a magnet for honeybees, and are a perfect resource to help sustain that endangered yet essential insect population.
They offer the largest range of fruit trees for sale in the UK, so you can rest assured they know what they are talking about. If you fancy doing your bit for the environment, you could do a whole lot worse than planting a crab apple tree, and contributing a bit of beauty and natural wonder to your area.
