I have a young Braeburn apple tree and a young Jack Grieve apple tree in tubs. Normal not dwarf. How would I prune - and when- and is it OK to keep them in tubs? Is there anything special I must do to keep them healthy? This is the 2nd year I have had them and they both have a good crop of apples of apples on them.



if you see any twiggy growth that dosent produce fruit prune it,prefrably after you harvest so october or november.

oh and yes they can grow in a tub but it will be quite small since plants grow as big as their environment. hope i helped :)

T After a few years they would be much better in the ground. If you want to grow apples in tubs you should buy ones on a dwarfing rootstock.
