I had a look at the site that you bought the trees from Ben.
I must confess that it did puzzle me slightly.
They only state that the trees are dwarf...but do not actually mention Columnia or Pillar. (. Columnia trees would normally be more expensive than those shown )
This makes me a little worried that they may in fact be on an ordinary dwarfing stock like 9 or 27. The 27 is a very dwarfing stock used often for pot growing.
Is there a number written on the labels they came with? There always should be.
Anyway Ben. They will show you later as they grow.
One thing though. Just in case they are on 27. Tie your trees to a supporting stake if you can. This stocks roots are very small so give very little support when the trees carrying a crop.
