Pleached Malus Golden Hornet Apple tree is a popular choice with gardeners looking to create a stilted hedge. With its crown trained to grow in a cube shape atop clear stem trunks, Pleached Crab Apple offers privacy from neighbours and adds ornamental value to the garden. To make transplanting easier and more efficient, these plants are root balled and not sold in a pot. Root balls offer great value for the money and allow you to create a striking hedge in no time.
Even though Crab Apple Golden Hornet offers interest for the better part of the year, it is undoubtedly at its best during the flowering season. In the late spring, this variety of Malus is enveloped by masses of dainty white flowers, followed by a profuse crop of golden-yellow fruit. The fruit is edible and it’s often used in jellies and jams, but if left unpicked, it will adorn the bare branches of the tree throughout winter.
When it comes to maintenance and care, Pleached Malus Golden Hornet is quite undemanding. This edible fruit tree will thrive in both full sun and partial shade, and in any moderately fertile soil. As it was bred in the United Kingdom, Crab Apple Golden Hornet is considered fully hardy. A light trim once or twice a year will keep the trained crown in its optimal form. Apart from being used in above fence screening, Pleached Crab Apple is a perfect candidate for lining walks and pathways. If you have limited space in your garden but the timeless beauty of the formal garden appeals to you, pleached fruit trees are the ideal way to get the distinct, traditional look without sacrificing much space.
