Advice needed

Daisy, when we took del of bare rooted stuff, the Grower took time to explain to make a little mound in the bottom of the hole and spread the roots equally over it, they explained they had no proof that adding food to the actual hole made any difference as the home made or G/C compost already has enough goodness in it but people liked to do it and so did we ,peace of mind youv done everything you can kind of thing ,however later feeding was important, FBB and slow release fertilizer was always mentioned as it goes a long way and isnt too expensive, i think later today you will get far better advise than mine as we have a lot of Rose people on here ,good luck.

Evening all,  a few months ago we bought a Braeburn  Apple bare root from our local G/C its now around 4 feet tall and doing ok,today, today i noticed 8 tiny apples forming,now i know we have wait a few years  to crop it but do i nip them off as i find them or just leave them to form and drop off , im thinking if i remove them then the tree will not waste any energy on them ,am i to remove or not to remove now that is the question folks. i suppose i could just take the money or open the box.
