Sargent Crabapple Tree Pollination
Sargent Crabapple Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Sargent Crabapple Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Sargent Crabapple is versatile and grows well in any soil type, from alkaline to acidic, and it prefers moist, well-draining soil. Place in full sun.
Once you've selected your location, dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate the root ball, place your tree and backfill the soil. Finally, water the surrounding area to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Although they prefer moist, well-drained soil, the Sargent Crabapple can tolerate drier conditions once established. In moderate climates, rainfall may be enough to water your Sargent Crabapple - in drier areas, check the soil and water when it's dry 3 inches below the surface.
3. Fertilizing: Add a 5-5-5 fertilizer in early spring each year.
4. Pruning: The Sargent Crabapple doesn't require significant pruning. Just lightly prune in winter to remove any damaged branches.
