Rooms With a View
Salt Spring Island is an idyllic place to visit. And where better to stay than a room at the B&B @ Salt Spring Apple Company? Perfectly located and open year-round.
The apple trees we sell are certified organic, grafted and grown by us right here on our Salt Spring Island property.
We take buds from the varieties we want to propagate and graft them onto rootstock each sping and again in late summer.
Choosing a Tree
The possibilities are almost endless. What sort of apples do you want? Fresh eating? Baking? Juicing? Sweet apples? Tart? Hard? Soft? Red skin? Green? Yellow? Summer harvest? Fall? Even later?
We can help you choose.
Where to plant
Apple trees are hardy and can survive even poor conditions. Still, make life easy for your new apple tree by giving it as sunny and warm a location as possible. The richer the soil, the faster it will grow.
When to Plant
You can plant a potted apple tree almost any time. We do recommend that you avoid the hottest week or two of the year, though.
