Morning folks 

Bit breezy and sunny .....for moment.  Could pour down today or be very pleasant.  Offen the worst of the weather passes me by so I know it will be the same today

Defecting some panic  about the Ebola outbreak or is it just me sensing it?

Some of mine are like that too Pauline.  Especially on varieties that have been very floriferous .  I think  they have just "shut down" as autumn arrived. I remove the blackened flower heads and allow the plants to begin their die down

Hiya lizyann and john and Gill ......warm welcome to,the forum.  Think everyone here is very friendly but the women folk talk too much about cakes 

To cut back or not

No don't cut back now.  Don't overwater but not over dry.  Don't pot on now.  They will not grow much at all from now on.  Just let them tick over now.  Most if not all will die down naturally

Wouldn't do it now.....well I would and do but I too am impatient.   Wait until spring and    pull apart in spring.  It will do nothing now anyway except perhaps suffer a little

What to do

You need to be careful about using a weedkiller there medavidcook.  Glyphosate is only weedkiller I would use.....it won't harm your apple tree;  I use glyphosate around fruit  trees in an orchard.  However ??ou will have to wait until  next spring to use it.

You could cover with a membrane to exclude light etc but glyphosate is best.  Can you dig over the grass away from tree?  If you want to prepare a planting bed over winter this is an option

Sure you cannot remove this tree?  I have removed pretty hefty trees and shrubs and nothing has "stumped". ( get it!  Good eh?  ) me yet.  A nice clear plot is what you really want after all
