The tree was planted as directed and lightly pruned back( planted end of Oct / Nov it soon came into bud and recently is beginning to blossom,any explanations ??
The weather has been very mild David, and most things have been ahead of where they should be.
As Verdun has said, its settling down, and the really cold weather has yet to hit us.
Dont worry about it it will soon get into its rhythm.
Thanks everybody for the advice !!
Our next door neighbours have one Alan - it's very productive and the apples are delicious.
