Product Information

There are few sights and smells more arresting in the garden than a Katsura or 'Toffee Apple' Tree in mid-autumn.

An elegant, ornamental tree, its heart-shaped green leaves turn shades of yellow, purple, pink and red before falling to the ground and releasing a distinctive and alluring fragrance that's similar to fairground candy floss or sweet toffee apple, hence its name, Heavenly!

Our Head Gardener Peter experienced this last autumn while walking in a lovely parkland setting, where the scent truly filled the air, as the autumn colours were at their very best and richest, and now he is a big fan too!

Supplied as an established plant in a 5L pot, ready for planting out, the Katsura Tree will grow to around 5m in a decade, and can eventually reach 15m so should be planted where it has room to show off.  It will do well in either a really sunny spot or in light shade and for a breathtaking display of autumn colour, plant in moist, well drained soils.

Making a perfect specimen tree, plant Katsura trees for years of pleasure.

Top Tips

The Katsura tree is a moisture loving plants and should be kept regularly well-watered until established (3-4 years). During this time, remove all competing weeds and grass which will take moisture away from the roots.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Cercidiphyllum 'Toffee Apple' Tree:

  • Select an appropriate spot with enough space to allow your Katsura tree to grow. Slightly acidic soils will promote better leaf colour.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the roots, forking over the bottom to loosen the soil, then add some good quality fertiliser, compost or well-rotted manure. We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Plant at the same depth as the tree was in its pot.
  • For all trees, use our Tree Planting Kits including stakes, rubber ties and Mycorrhizal fungi, which is proven to aid tree growth and development.
  • Push 40cm of each stake into the soil next to each tree. Make a figure of eight around both the trunk and stake with a tie and fasten it off. Spread Mycorrhizal granules in contact with the roots when planting.
  • Holding the tree upright in position with one hand, slowly backfill the hole with soil, so the soil falls back around the roots.
  • Compact the soil around the plant with your heel to ensure good contact around the roots and water in well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Aftercare Advice for Cercidiphyllum japonicum:

  • Best in full sun to grow well, in well-drained, fertile and slightly acid soils.
  • Established trees are largely trouble free.
  • Apply a balanced fertiliser such as fish blood and bone in late February.
  • Keep plants well-watered for at least 4 years and remove all competing vegetation.
  • A mulch of well-rotted compost around the base of the tree will help to retain moisture.

 

Pruning Advice for Your Katsura Tree:

  • There is no real need to prune the toffee apple tree as it does not respond well to hard pruning - just trim back any branches that have been damaged by frosts in late spring.
