It's ok AuntyRach - sanity remains on BBC2
I wouldn't worry - they look healthy enough - they'll turn greener over time - of course some varieties do have yellower leaves than others.
I would just leave them be - they'll grow and produce side shoots over the years. Crab apples rarely need much if any pruning.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrr! Chilly here too Obelixx. Heating's come on ............
Do you feel like telling us who supplied the others?
Well you lot ... it's your fault ... remember that conversation the other day? ... We're having ham, egg and chips for supper
I stop feeding the birds for three weeks Aug/September (we usually take our holiday early Sept) and a few times a year we give the feeders a good scrub and a soak in Milton and then make sure they're properly dry before hanging them up again.
Seems to work ... fingers crossed.
I would get the plants.
Plugs sound too small to fruit this year. You're supposed to prevent first year plants from fruiting by removing the flowers.
I agree with Nut - it's a monster - have 'em all out.
Great pic Zenjeff
I was sitting in bed yesterday morning with a mug of coffee, watching some things falling, one after the other into our neighbour's garden................ then I saw the blackbird hurling lumps of moss from the gutter and rooftiles in the search for bugs and grubs
