Owner's comments

I planted this tree in the spot where old dog used to lie in the centre of the east facing front garden. It did nothing. I replanted it in the back garden eighteen months ago and I have just picked twenty large apples. Hopefully it is now a happy tree and will continue to produce fruit for many years. I bought the tree from Macclesfield Garden Centre.
