We have inheirited an apple tree which seems like it needs some tlc. It is, I am told, a Discovery. There was quite a lot of fruit which we have now picked, wrapped and stored. My question is, a lot of the fruit had been attacked, (wasp, fly, earwig and probably birds as well) how do we prevent this next year? How do we prune the tree as it is quite high. Any other tips would be appreciated. We also have a plum tree which didn't crop well, also don't know what type it is, care tips for this as well please.
