Re: Productive apple tree

I wish I had done all my fruit trees as step overs or something now, the rooks come down and peck every ripe apple, usually just once, a big beak into each lovely apple. Looks a lovely productive little tree

Re: Tunnel vision

Looking wonderful. I am quite inspired by your grape, I keep thinking I will put two in my tunnel, but I am really bad at pruning things back, I have a hard time side shooting tomatoes, they just look so happy growing away. I am guessing you have to keep pruning off side shoots etc to keep it tame?

Re: Tomato trial results
