Are Bramley Seedlings good as Cordons?

I couldn't resist Bramley Seedling maiden trees for £5 in ASDA. My plan was to train them as cordons. I have since discovered that they are partial tip bearers and therefore wonder if they are the best variety for Cordon training. Any advice would be welcome.

  • I have to say I bought a cheaply a granny smith and cordoned against the fence,it has taken some time to train the branches/spurs and is now 6ft.It was the only good crop of apples this year but it takes time.I am training a apple tree I grew from a cutting and hope to see what that does.image

  • Looks like knocking the cordon idea on the head then. I'll plant two and maybe give the others away. Any takers?
