Apple Blossom Bonsai Growing Tips

Malus micromalus or Dwarf Crabapple is a delightful species of tree that is part of the Rosaceae family, the same as Roses! This deciduous species is used in gardens for the beautiful flowers and is even known to be used for root stock on grafted apple trees. The clusters of pink flower buds produce masses of delicate white flowers in the Spring time and create a striking bonsai specimen.

Originating from cold mountainous regions crab apples have often been used for creating jams and other preserves. The small fruits are quite sour and tart and as a result the trees are commonly used instead for their aesthetic appeal.

Germination tips:

  • Crab Apple seeds benefit from pretreatment prior to sowing. The stratification steps from the Maple tips above can be used for your apple blossom seeds to break the dormancy.
  • As with many bonsai seeds the ideal time of year for sowing is in the Spring and Autumn. Once treated the seed should be sown in stable temperatures of about 18-22°C.
