It doesnt look like its out in flower yet.
The apple needs to be grafted, no fruit from a pip
Dont know about oranges, didnt think it was warm enough in this country.
Mine the same, be ok with this rain we are getting now.
Thank you for your message.
It would benefit from having the top bit of growth pinched out to the next set of leaves.
I use compost bags as well. Dont make the drain holes in the bottom, make them about 2inches up, that way the bag will hold some water in a drought.
I think they are best put in water on the windowsill later in the year, try September. I usually do 200 or so, all take well but not in the hot weather.
I am also in Devon, had similar problem, I think its been to hot they need gallons of water, thats all. Rain, heavy and thunder due for the next unforseeable future, they will be ok then.
My daughter grows this purposely so that the children she looks after can stroke it, never had a problem.
