Curious apple tree
I'm rather puzzled by our apple tree - my boyfriend said he bought it like this but it’s neither an espalier nor fan nor cordon as far as I can tell?
It’s not grown much nor been very productive (perhaps because there are no apple trees nearby that I know of) and I’m not sure how to prune it...
As you can see, the growth is also quite one-sided! It's in a sheltered sunny spot, in stony, free-draining soil that I've added compost and fertiliser too, I water and feed it too.... we only had 3 apples this year!
Could you offer any tips on pruning and pollination to try and save our little tree please?
