Owner's comments

March '10. Bought at son Tom's request as he loves the Elstar juice that a local farm shop produces. Stupidly I'd left the bare root tree in a bucket by the back door prior to planting. Found it days later dried up on the lawn with both roots & top chewed off by our retriever puppy. Planted it with little hope of survival, plus we had a v hot dry early summer. Has romped away despite all this. finger crossed for fruit next yr.
