Pollination Info

Scarlet Sentinel Columnar Apple Tree Pollination

Scarlet Sentinel Columnar Apple Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another variety to achieve fruiting. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Full sun and well-drained soil are ideal for ensuring your Scarlet Sentinel thrives. So, select any area that receives approximately 6 hours of sunlight per day. Once you've selected a location, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Place your new tree, back fill the hole and then mulch to preserve moisture. Finally, water to settle the roots.

*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.

2. Watering: Your Scarlet Sentinel Columnar Apple will benefit from a regular watering each week. You may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. However, if you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water.

3. Pruning: Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems and weak, damaged or dead branches.

Beautiful Tree!

The tree arrived in perfect condition and very healthy. After repotting and adjusting for just a couple of weeks, I have fresh leaves and apple blossoms blooming already. I'm expecting another variety to deliver today so that the pollination can begin. I can't wait to eat these upcoming apples!

This was such an easy process! I have never ordered a plant online before, so this was a huge risk for me. I ordered two trees and both came on time and in perfect condition. Looking forward to our first crop!

Scarlet Sentinel Columnar Apple Tree

Tree arrived packaged with the other apple tree. Live in zone 7, placed tree in clay pot outdoors. Weather has been sketchy. The other apple tree ( Blushing Delight Columnar Apple Tree ) has a couple of leaves, but this one has not so far. Alot of the buds on tree were missing when it arrived, however some are present. Still waiting to see if the buds will produce leaves.


Thank you for the review! As the temperatures begin to warm up you'll start seeing lots of beautiful new growth! Please reach out right away with any concerns!
