Post dwarft apple trees
I have already posted this on the PPG forum and have a number of leads to follow up on, but does anyone on this list have or know of a nursery that has dwarf Liberty and dwarf Akane apple trees that are at least two years old?

Does anyone have a dwarf apple tree that is compatible with Liberty?

I want a dwarf Liberty for my small yard, and I will need another to cross polinate it (also dwarf), but I am most interested in getting slightly older trees so my grandchildren will not have to wait so long to pick fruit.

Any suggestions will be welcome.

Yes, but they are all one year old trees and won't bear fruit for 3 years or so.

Kelly:

The M26 trees are more considered dwarf than semi-dwarf and will bear a few apples next year, and guaranteed a bunch in two years.

A good pollinator for Liberty would be Golden Delicious.

It is difficult to find older fruit trees, and they are usually not very healthy. If they're in pots the roots are twisted and potbound and will never straighten out.

This is a good way to teach your grandchildren patience, which is why we plant apple trees at many of our elementary schools in our district.

Be careful when requesting "dwarf" trees. A better question would be haw tall will the tree get on this named rootstock.
Liberty blooms ealry and HOS has a bloom list of about 4 pages double colums of early bloomers. See ebooks.
