MMP, I bought an apple tree in Aldi last November and planted it in my allotment that same day 2 weeks later it burst into leaf , I was so worried about this that I posted on this forum the reply I got was , the tree was stored in warm conditions in the wear house and shop and thought it was spring ,it now has new leaf growth and flower buds ,but as was said earlier by Sotongeoff and nutcutlet ,plant it by next weekend .

Hi Rosa , Unfortunately I don't one in my present garden ,but I had one in my first house when I lived in Dublin it was a glorious pink mop-head . North county Dublin is very chalky so if you wanted a blue you had to add sequestration of iron
