apple trees in pots

I think you've got it Pansy - it looks like one of the upright growing modern dwarf crab apples to me - possibly 'Laura'

a pretty thing and ideal for container growing although it will need plenty of water and repotting from time to time - use John Innes No 3 loam based compost.


As you say it shouldn't need much in the way of pruning

What is your weather like? (2)

Cheers GD  , Day Daisy and everyone   Lurgy still here but I'm surviving


Another sharp frost here today - roofs, grass and cars white and I expect to hear the sound of next door's windscreen being scraped very soon.


There's white frost in the back garden and the bird bath was iced over, but the thermometer on the sheltered back wall only shows 2.3C overnight.  I'm wondering whether I should move it more into the centre of the garden ... but how to keep it out of the sun?  I shall have to have a think

Love days like that Chicky 


Pat  OH reckons it'll be four days before I'm feeling human again, then a week of coughs and sniffles   I shall spend today on the sofa. There's plenty of soup and stew in the fridge.

Good morning all - not too bad a night but right tonsil now very sore and a host of chirruping crickets in both ears. 


OH is in the spare room , but his alarm will wake him soon and he'll bring me a mug of coffee ... The warmth will be good for my throat ...


Hope the rest of you are ok or improving ...
