Warwickshire, United Kingdom
we planted a brambley seedling apple tree 18 years ago on an old farm muck heap area its grown well but never produced a great crop, recent years ive tried to improve this in several ways. .First hard winter prune all leaders back to 3",
This produced good growth lots off flowers but sadley not a lot of fruit
Then i was advised to plant a crab apple close by which i did this tree fruited well.
We also started keeping our own bees, ive wood ash mulshed fitted grease bands, it currently has one apple on it and its making great summer groth
