It is generally recommended that apples should be grown on vigorous rootstocks, such as M25 or M111. This ensures vigorous growth, which is more likely to minimise disease problems. Trees can be purchased in various sizes. Maidens are young trees, which require training but which will establish quickly. Standards and half standards are trained but, as they are older plants they may establish more slowly. All newly planted trees require help in establishing. It is good to leave an area 1m diameter around the tree is free of vegetation, especially grass, to reduce competition. Watering may be necessary in drought conditions and especially in the first spring.
