What's the best position for a potted one of these - sheltered, exposed, full sun, part etc..? Thanks.

Hi Chris Apples are pretty tough and I think this is one of the Starline series which are excellent. It wants a reasonably sunny position and sheltered. The main reason for that is because apples in pots are always susceptible to wind rock, which can break the roots in the growing medium. Also because in full leaf they are top heavy and easily blown over. Water regularly and make sure you feed at the beginning of each season with a balanced slow-release fertiliser: rose food is ideal.
