Hi all - one of the two small apple trees in our new garden is growing at about 45 degrees. It has loads of apples on it (looking forward to autumn, nomnomnom). But I was wondering if I should prop it up in some way or just leave it, as it's obviously been growing like this for some time and seems very stable.
You can see the trunk, bottom left.
with the weight of the apples, it could cause it to snap, so I would put a prop at 45 degrees to top of trunk.
