Question & Answer
Why do I have to cross pollinate? How do I cross pollinate? Do I just buy that other plant and plant the two in the same pot? Do you sell the other variety too? From:
You cross pollinate to get the flowers to set fruit. It is the bees that pollinate them. Because they are cross pollinated that means you can't have the same variety you need another apple variety to cross pollinate it. Yes we do sell the other variety these ones will suit #DwarfApple811 #DwarfApple812 You need to have at least 2 of these growing in your backyard. Here is a detailed blog on the topic you can skip to the Cross Pollination section for details that apply to apples. http://blog.daleysfruit.com.au/2014/11/pollination-of-fruit-trees.html
