Apple Trees and Grass Clippings

Posted: 03/09/2014 at 16:39

Hi Paul , pruning apple trees first depends on there age , for the planting and the early years  pruning differs from later older trees so to get it right try this advice from the RHS its all made simple ,even i understand it,

Hi Benny,here in Norfolk were only 100 mtr from the sea so we do get lots of damp air although the air here is very clean, the trees often get moss growing in them ,this area ,s soil is also very sandy and has excellent  drainage, the Yucca  we think was quite old and as you can see it had damage on it when we bought the house about 10 months ago, the remaining one is now very lose and the main trunk is also soon to just blow over as we get strong north and east winds from the sea,so when it does i,ll pot it up. I didn't know about the rosettes and rhizomes so that's very helpful and yes the new one you see is only 2 weeks old it just appeared one morning a nice surprise, and many thanks for all your help cheers and good luck Benny

Hi Yuccaman007 unfortunately the plant was not really too well ,when i looked the old leaves were full of snails and stuff,after a good clean up i noticed one of the plants was rotting so i removed it ,cleaned it up and planted it ,its now in the greenhouse hopefully recovering, the other part is still on the main stem which now i find is rotting also,so do i cut it of and replant in a pot as before do you think,the original yucca is now loose and i will pull it up soon do you think, when i replanted the other i cleaned it up like i would a pineapple was  this correct,

pollination

Hi Iain it would be good to have im told a crab apple to pollinate as it seems to be an all rounder  almost for pollination,a dwarf stock would do.
