Patio Pear

Last year I bought a patio pear tree and didn't expect it to fruit but I have great hopes for this year.  The leaves look really healthy.  Should I thin out some branches or cut them back a bit or is this not the time to do it ??  Please help this novice fruit grower. I also have a patio plum and apple so advice on them all would be much appreciated.

I have just sown grass seed and as soon as I had turned my back there was a field mouse at the seed.  Can I do anything to stop them demolishing all my hard work ????

Thank you all for your advice.  It is definitely a Rhododendron.  It is in soil not in a pot and is fed with fertiliser especially for rhododendrons/azaleas. It flowers well but the leaves are awful !!  Please keep the advice coming.

I have several rhododendron all but one is healthy.  This plant has droopy leaves that are dry and brown.  This has happened for the last couple of years.  It seems to revive but looks awful at the moment.  All are fed in the same way.  Any ideas please.

Patio Apple

Thank you SO much especially LIRIODENDRON.  You got the "grandmother" bit right !!!  It is in a pot and I didn't feed it.  I will try thinning out the fruit next year.  The wee apples look so perfect but TINY.. Chutney is a thought.  Thanks.
