Nope, that's not an apple tree.


That is a troublesome weed -don't what it is called- but it ain't an apple tree


thank you both for reply,i did plant an apple pip in the pot,so am confused now,the buds at the end are a pinky colour,


Polygonum avilculare - a weed of newly disturbed soil.  Sorry - hope you get something you want to grow 


when did you plant the pip, take the weed out and leave the pot a while longer you still might get your apple tree


And then you only have to wait about 5 years for it to produce fruit, 99.9% chance it will be a Crab apple too and if allowed to grow on could make a 25 feet plus tree eventually.
