Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

I've just bought and potted up a cordon cooking apple tree for my new, tiny plot at home.

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

If you like them, keep them! but I wouldn't plant anything within a foot of the widest part, the trees will steal all the moisture & nutrients.

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

fabulous! just a wee caution, the soil will always be quite dry around the base of the two conifers, so don't plant anything too close to them. Personally, I'd remove them and plant some pretty climbers against the fence instead! (or maybe even a bean frame??) What direction are you facing?

Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

I received my cordon apple tree just before Christmas. It is happily sitting in a pot, hope it grows! Now I only have a small area of garden instead of my allotment, I am having to be creative. It is a cooker, and I can't wait to see it make its first apple. Not sure how long I'll have to wait though!
