Crab Apple Tree Gift

Malus sylvestris donum


Next day delivery available, just order before 11am Mon to Thurs.

Surprise a loved one with our Crab Apple Tree Gift, an alternative gift that keeps on giving. Known as the ‘Tree of Love’ in Celtic mythology, this native tree is a customer favourite for weddings, anniversaries, and new baby celebrations.

Our Crab Apple tree sapling arrives with a charming size. Soft, green leaves adorn its slender trunk and spring welcomes a display of pink-white blossom; butterflies, birds, and bees simply can’t resist their sweet fragrance. Summer sees a bounty of red and yellow crab apples grow. Picking your own apples for baking and jam-making is simple yet satisfying. When this fruit tree matures, fragrant, pink-white flowers engulf its branches - they are truly worth the wait.

This token of love is worry-free as it happily withstands the winter months. Just click ‘Add to Basket’ to personalise a card and choose a day for delivery. We’ll handle the gift-wrapping.

A friendly, reliable and hassle-free service. Tree arrived exactly when requested, with a wealth of helpful info regarding planting and care, both in the parcel and on the website. Couldn't ask for more. 100% recommended. Btw can't speak for the results as have only just planted it, but fully expect to be equally pleased. Would be happy to review again in the summer!


Fantastic gift. Recipient was thrilled with idea. Tree came when expected and was " lovely " ! Will definitely use your company again.

The tree was delivered on the day promised, in excellent condition and was extremely well packaged. A truly lovely and original gift.


I ordered this tree at the last minute and it arrived on time and in a healthy state. A happy tree and a delighted recipient of the gift.

This is the perfect wedding gift. From the meaning of the tree name 'Tree of Love' to the thought behind having a tree grow each year as we do in our relationship. I loved also the way it was delivered in it's little bag and with a card. Such a thoughtful gift. Fingers crossed it will grow!

My husband bought me this for valentines day and I love it! Easy to plant and will last much longer than flowers!
