162 in stock (can be backordered)

Branches encouraged to grow more horizontally will form a stronger framework for the young fruit tree as it matures. They will also bear earlier, be more fruitful and require less pruning. Some orchardists feel it is preferable to let young trees grow for a year or two before beginning to train them. These galvanized metal branch spreaders are more durable and work better for larger limbs than the plastic version we used to carry. The patented tip style has a sturdy point in the middle and gently curving corners to hold the branch and prevent slipping.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
