Can I espalier a Supreme Dwarf bare root?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Certainly! Even if the existing, pre-pruned branches do not fit your espalier plan, you can selectively prune and train future growth to suit your design.
I'd like to get two dwarf apples--one for eating and one for eating/baking. I like the cortland for eating and it's a good baker, but I see this about the honeycrisp: "Best pollinators: any Golden Delicious, Stark® Jon-A-Red® Jonathan or Starkspur® Red Rome Beauty. Will Cortland and Honeycrisp be compatible for pollination?
Kathy on Jan 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Cortland and the Honeycrisp slightly overlap bloom time and might work in a perfect season but I wouldn't recommend taking that chance. The Jonafree Apple, Ginger Gold® Apple or WineCrisp™ Apple are a few other selections that you might like that will work as pollinators for the Honeycrisp.
Would this variety pollinate well with the Granny Smith?
Dione on Dec 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Granny Smith and Honey crisp will pollinate each other.
I live in the woods. Have to clear a place for Apple and fruit trees that we want. When we purchase, should I buy bare root or get the potted tree? Which is the best and most likely to survive.
Tamara W on Jan 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Bear root trees are not any more temperamental then a potted tree, they are shipped in a dormant stage and you actually get a great product because the roots have not been cut to fit them in a pot. I am happy with all my bare root trees. The grow jut great, they cost less to ship, I will buy more for this coming sprint.
Will honey crisp grow in climate 8b?
Greg W on Dec 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately there are not enough chill hours in a zone 8b for the honey crisp apple tree to grow and produce successfully. This particular variety does much better in colder climates. The recommended zone range is 3-6.
Would an Arkansas black apple work for cross pollination?
Kelly G on Feb 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Honeycrisp and the Arkansas Black would cross pollinate.

Excellent Quality
Thank you for your prompt shipment of the Dwarf Honeychrisp Supreme tree and the very important tree guards. The quality of your dwarf tree is excellent and came packed very well.

I planted it immediately and look forward to spring when it may bloom. I think it will take a few years though. I have several other apples in the garden - golden delicious, Fuji, and two large Gravenstein. The Honeychrisp will make a welcome addition.

The tree guards worked very well on my existing trees since I was using duct tape in the past but tape allowed bugs to get under and cause minor damage. The tree guards you have are very easy to install and will work much better than the tape.

Again thank you for providing such healthy plants and useful items for our gardens.

All the Best.
