We planted a James Grieve sappling in autum 2011 and have had a small crop of a dozen apples this year, but there doesn't seem to be any new growth on the tree at all, which has quite surprised us.
Question is, should it have grown at all, or is it because its the first year in the ground?
Another question is should we prune it this year to encourage growth next year?
We did actually lightly prune it in the winter, maybe we shouldn't have. Followed these instructions.
