    Very successfully established in what used to be a well-manured vegetable plot. This tree was planted one year ago as a 1.2 m whip, and is already catching up our other Bramley that is a year older, undoubtedly due to the better location and soil. Actual height 2.2 m and spread 0.4 m. Trunk thickness above graft 4 cm. Will need to be pruned after leaf fall to encourage lateral growth.
