    I have three hat trick apple trees. I have never had any blooms. Can you tell me how to trim so that I don’t cut fruiting steams? Jane Sullivan

      Hi Jane, thanks for your question. Smooth buds are the ones that grow just leaves. The ones that look like little stacks of pancakes are the fruit bearing stems, do not cut those. Please feel free to give us a call if you have additional questions.

      My hat trick trees do not produce blossoms….I am “almost’ certain I have trimmed them properly…..stems with little”stack of pancakes”!”The trees are five years old and have three triers!!! Could it be due to lack of a particular nutrient that the tree needs to produce a bloom? Thank you. I have even had “county extension” people here and no one seems to know the problems. Thanks for any assistance. Jane Sullivan

    Hello, we just planted two hat trick apple trees we bought from Pahl’s and we are excited that we have what appears to be multiple apples forming on the top tier! We are just wondering if you happen to know which tier is which?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Hello! I Have been eyeing these trees for over a year and my wife and I took advantage of a tree sale this last weekend and bought two Hat Trick Apple trees. It was understandably pretty busy so I couldn’t really find anyone who could give me the “how to” on caring for and pruning these trees. Is there someone there who is well versed in these that I could come in and speak with during your offpeak hours?

    Thanks!

    Hi! I am from northern Wisconsin and have a hat trick espalier apple tree along our walkway and would like to purchase one more to plant next to it to extend along the walkway. Do you still sell this tree–if so, do you ship and availability and price??? Awaiting your reply with best regards, Sandy

    • Chris KaufenbergFebruary 16, 2018 at 2:52 pm #

      Hi Sandy, we do still carry the tree but unfortunately do not ship plant material. Bailey’s Nursery developed that tree and it is possible that a local garden center in your area might be a Bailey’s Nursery customer. We would recommend checking their website for a local garden center and see if they are able to get you one, http://www.baileynurseries.com/gardeners/find-a-retailer/. Thanks for checking with us!

    How do you plant a hat trick apple tree? I understand it must be close to the wall. But how far from the wall and how deep should I dig a hole for the tree?

    • Chris KaufenbergMay 14, 2020 at 10:43 am #

      Plant the tree as close to the wall as you can. Dig the hole the same depth as the container and a bit wider than the container to add some compost or soil when you plant it. Good luck!
