Dwarf Royal Gala Apple Tree

These Royal Beaut Gala apple trees have been grafted onto dwarf M9 rootstock being very productive, and will bear fruit 1 year after planting out. They can be planted very close together which makes it ideal for an apple tree hedge, against a wall, espaliered or even just in containers.

It is essential to have another pollinator with them. Granny Smith apples are great pollinators for these dwarf trees, and temperatures below 7 degrees in winter are required.

Royal Gala apples have red and yellow skin. The texture is crisp and firm with a juicy, deliciously sweet flavour. The flowers are white blossoms that bloom in late September, as the fruit will ripen during the late summer (February/March).

For extra winter chilling, apple trees should be planted in full sun, with 6 to 8 hours of sunshine, preferably on the south side of the property. If growing your tree in containers, consider moving it outdoors during winter. Use at least a 50L container if not planting directly into the soil.


Due to the rootstock being used, the tree can grow up to 3 metres high with a width of 1 metre  wide. This make it an ideal tree for any garden.

Soil type

This tree will grow well in well-drained soil with a pH of between 5.8 and 7. The soil needs to be fertile and moisture retentive. Use good potting soil and compost mix, leaving 10-15cm of roots.


Apply a good layer of mulch of about 7-8 centimetres around the base of the tree. This will help keep the soil moist.


Ensure not to overwater your tree, especially if grown in a container. Watering once or twice a week will be completely sufficient. You might water more during the summer when fruit is on the tree, especially during prolonged dry periods.


Fertilise using a nitrogen fertiliser and good compost. Use our slow-release nitrogen-rich all plant fertiliser. Apply 1 teaspoon every 4-5 months.


This is usually done during winter when the tree is dormant. Prune the same as you would do a full-size fruit tree, removing damaged or diseased branches and ones that grow to the tree’s centre.


Dwarf trees use rootstock with a very small root system as they will need support, especially during fruiting. Tying them to a stake in order to secure the rootstock is deemed necessary.


Requires a pollinator such as Granny Smith.
