Novice questions by the bundle at the moment. I’ve recently purchased a Trio Apple tree from bloomingdirect on the GW offers. Unfortunately there is no mention on the tag with regards the trees needs. Can somebody please educate me on at this stage is it an indoors tree or is it ready to go in the garden (pot or plant) and it’s watering and light needs.

As usual thanks very much.

    In the ground, outdoors, in the sunniest position you have.  You will need to stake it, too.
    I would dig over an area of at least a square metre, incorporating a 50l bag of well-rotted manure bought from a garden centre.  Then make a square hole twice the diameter of the pot it came in and plant it so the soil is at exactly the same level as in the pot.  It's best to drive your stake in before planting, so as not to damage the roots.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
