Just got an allotment after a three year wait, I have found two mature
and two immature apple trees, Not sure if they are cookers or dessert,
There are small fruits forming and the base are covered in weeds.
How best to care for them between fruiting and picking please?
Clear the weeds and mulch all around, trim off any shoots from below
the graft, feed now and then again mid summer. Water deeply if it
gets dry. Keep your eyes open for attack by insects, fungi and fruit
thieves both four and two legged. If there are many fruit consider
thinning them. Consider pruning next winter before budding. Ask
others who grow apples at the allotment for tips.
