How to grow Crabapples (Malus)

Latin Name Pronunciation: may’lus

Plant Crabapples in full sun for optimal development of flowers and fruit. The trees grow best in average garden soil that is moist but well-drained and slightly acidic. Fertilize in spring with a balanced granular fertilizer, such as 10-10-10. Prune as needed in spring right after flowering.
