I have spent most of today pruning a somewhat congested 20ft high James Grieve. It still had a lot of apples this year, just near on impossible to pick them. I expect that next year there will be less apples, but it needed it badly.
I got some new tripod ladders. They feel very safe as opposed to the usual stepladders.
New trees are on much dwarfer rootstocks, but I like the taste of these aples , so it stays for now.
