Apple tree problem

Possibly an aphid problem - I would make up a weak soap solution and spray them

Good morning all  

We have the big orange slugs here too - on warm damp mornings in late summer we  find them making baby slugs on the lawn - the big ones eat the little ones so I leave them alone. 

Sad and sorry looking

Commercial Christmas tree growers prune lateral branches to promote bushy growth, so there may be a chance for it yet, but what are you going to do with it then?  Norwegian Spruce grow and grow and grow - do you have the space for it?  

In time it will grow to 60ft or more tall and 20-40ft wide - if that is planted in your garden either you or someone who comes after you will have an expensive bill from a tree surgeon to take it down.

Sometimes things are free for a reason 

Don't say you haven't been warned!

Put one boot leg inside the other and prop them up in a corner by the door - the insides will stay dry.

They like red and white currants - don't think they eat anything else
