Can I ask what the best apple tree is for growing on an allotment. I don't want an enormous tree that takes over the entire plot however I would like a good crop. i think I will probably try an espalliare ( if thats spelt right) but really don't know where to start.
We have 100+ old cherry tree with fabulous flavour and crop of cherries. Decayed part of tree fell over a few years ago. The remaining trunk is leaning at about 15 degrees. We have chopped off the top to a height of 13 feet which has produced branches with fruit for the last 5 years. What type of stake should we use?
