If is bare rooted follow Gamvert's October advice but if its pot grown plant it any time of the year its survived for many years in a post and wants to be set free just make sure its well watered

We have two Bramleys, which I planted about twelve years ago. As trees they have flourished but as fruiters they are disappointing. Their apples are rather wooly and insipid. Bramleys originated in Nottinghamshire so I think central France is too far south for them.
