large hole at bottom of trunk of old apple tree
Essex, United Kingdom
We are renovating an old garden. When clearing out a rose bush that was surrounding the base of the trunk of an apple tree, we found a large hole in the trunk, full of dirt and worms. We have cleared that out, should we refill it with anything, and more importantly is the tree now beyond saving? Any advice would be welcome. We pruned the branches last summer, and there seems to be quite a lot of blossom appearing on it now. Regards.
