Owner's commentsThe tree was planted in late 2008. I bought it for my daughters garden to grow against a new 6' high brick wall. I trimmed back the dead growth and shortened the upper braches. It had quite a lot of blossom but less fruit which was of a good size in 2009. It was edible as a crisp dessert apple but they preferred it as an apple sauce. We bought it as a discounted plant from Cadburys World GC in Somerset. We planted it with a feed of bone meal and added 'bought in' peat based compost to improve the soil. A water permeable weed control fabric was laid over the soil and then a mulch of composted bark was laid on top. It has not been pruned this year yet because of the weather.
