A wonderfully pretty ornamental Crab Apple tree, Red Sentinel's attractive branches burst with beautiful pinkish-white blossom throughout spring, filling your garden with lovely sweet fragrance! They really do flower their socks off in Spring, and are an excellent source of pollen to pollinate nearby Apple trees too, a method often used in commercial orchards. Beautiful and useful too!
The flowers are followed in Autumn by plump, round, brightest cherry-red fruits that deepen in colour as they remain on the tree right into the Winter. Once the leaves have dropped off, and the red fruits remain, it takes on a unique quality and appearance.
Harvest these miniature treasures to make your own delicious, home-made crab apple jelly! Whats more, this tree is perfect for nature lovers, as any fruit you dont pick will provide a plentiful source of food for wild birds. Bees and other beneficial insects will love the gorgeous blossom they will be helping to pollinate your whole mini-orchard!

Product : The tree was planted the following day into a large tub and now after only about two weeks looks in the peek of health, I've no doubt that in a further few weeks it will be in full flower and that later in the summer will become an excellent speciman.
