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.

Hoping for the best

Arrived as a big stick. No leaves or anything. Did see a few nodes that looks like they were ready to sprout. It's been a week and there are a few green sprouts. I hopeful that it will keep growing.

Great Little Tree

While I've had mixed results with the various purchases from FGT The Red Columnar Apple tree has done very well. Planted 2 seasons ago and the tree has produced apples. I would buy again.
