Season records for this tree

  • 2017

    First season and it was very hot and dry, I watered it regularly but it still became stressed, aphids being farmed by ants almost destroyed the new growth, I added grease bands and the aphids were eaten by ladybirds and the tree thrived, good growth and a fair amount fruit for the first year. M26 Apples suffered fro bitter pit probably due to the hot dry weather and the first year in the ground, unaffected apples tasted great.
