ive grown my own apple tree from a pip its only small still in a little pot when can i plant it outside hope you can help thanks steve



Spring is probably the best time, or keep it in a pot until it is a reasonable size. Sadly trees grown from apple pips will not be the same as the parent. Malus domestica is reckoned to be the most variable plant of all from seed. You will end up with a huge tree( possibly) which has tiny crab apples (possibly). Still there is the small chance that you will end up with something useful, after all Granny Smith did.
