I find grease bands very difficult to attach and last year ended up using grease and spreading it on with my hands (with disposable gloves, I might add).
I can't see why apple trees in pots should be any different to those in the ground. It wouldn't hurt to grease band them.

I have a victoria plum tree that didn't flower this year - probably due to the very cold spring. My apple trees are loaded this year.

Have had up to eight long tailed tits in the garden over the cold weather - usually only see them in the summer. Lots of other wildbirds too - blackbirds, coal/blue/great tits, greenfinches, goldfinches, woodpecker, wood pigeons.
