Pruning apple tree

Posted: 23/10/2013 at 15:44

I have a very large' Bramley Seedling' cooking apple tree.  It's still producing loads of apples.  I just need advice on when it is best to give it a really good prune.  It's so large I can't reach half the apples anymore.

Weather much improved today after a dodgy start.  Got soaked this morning.  Sun shining now and have been able to get out in the garden.  Cleared away some dahlias, cut back and few bits and pieces and moved some too.  Looks much tidier.  Could do with cutting the grass but it's still a bit wet.  Hopefully get on with that tomorrow.  Need to get up the allotment too and make headway on the new ploy we've got.

Verdun - have sent you some crumble by esp!  Lovely all my own produce. Have loads of apples and just thinking what else I can make?

Just found a recipe for apple and banana muffins! Might try them tomorrow.

Oh no. Hope it doesn't affect you too much. Our local river does flood, but usually onto large flood plain so no worries immediately to my house. I really feel for those who've had flooding it must be devastating.

Thanks for the advice. I did grow in a block of 9 as that's all I had room for this year, but have now managed to take on the plot next to mine so will have plenty of room next year. Ta x

Evening all. Very wet again here today. Just taken on a second allotment plot, but weather is holding me back from clearing it and getting it tidy. Not cold, but where is the sun? Anyone seen it? 

Off to eat home-made raspberry and apple crumble. Yum yum

Strange weather we've been having

Front garden revamp - before and after photos

It looks fab and makes my front garden look very drab,  maybe a project next year!

Just hire one for the day.  It's probably much easier.  You will have to dig all the weeds up first though, because there's no use rotavating the weeds back into the soil.
