DWARF FRUIT TREES

Description

There are many ways to have Dwarf Fruit Trees suitable for turning your small backyard into a thriving orchard. Here are 4 different types of Dwarf Fruit Trees:

TRUE dwarf | Semi Dwarf | Traditional Dwarf | Bonsai in Pots


To grow dwarf trees successfully in containers all you need to do is supply a rich potting mix and re-pot regularly. Feed the trees every 6 months with a slow release fertiliser, provide plenty of sunlight, and keep the tree moist. The secret with keeping trees healthy and productive in containers is to re-pot and prune (roots and tops) at least every two years.

True Dwarfs

True dwarfs use either the rootstock eg flying dragon or the scion (cutting used for grafting onto rootstock) to dwarf or stunt the growth of a fruit tree while keeping the fruit the normal size. This creates more compact trees suitable for small Australian backyards.

Semi Dwarf Fruit Trees

These trees are smaller than their full sized counterparts, in the case of apples grafted onto MM102 or MM106, they are about 2/3 the size of a full grown apple tree they will grow 3-4m, A16 macadamias 4-5m

Small Fruit Trees

These are fruit trees that are naturally small and will go well in pots or bonsai bags

Bonsai in Pots

These are fruit trees that will grow very large when in the ground but can also be grown in pots. When their root system is restricted in a pot they will stay small and still produce fruit. The trick to successful bonsai your fruit trees is regular root and top pruning as well as repotting annually with a good quality potting mix. Our Bonsai Bags make this process easier.
