What will it look like?
Illustrative example of a pot-grown tree of this variety as supplied.
(Approx. girth: 6/8).
Trees should reach their mature height after about 10 or more years.
We may also have 1-year bare-root trees of this variety - they are not shown here.
Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches.
The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).
How to grow
Princeton Gold is relatively fast-growing, likely to reach 5m or so within 10 years, and continuing to grow thereafter.
