On the radio this morn the talk,has been about life changing events in our childhood. ...Viz.programmes on the tv 

For me Casey jones, Popeye and the Magic Roundabout bring back memories.  I even had my own words for Casey.  

On the comedy front Ever Decreasing Circles was brilliant.  I was supposed be like the guy Martin was jealous of....can't remember his name for mo.  

So folks,.....childhood tv and best comedy from the past?

What should I do with these apple trees and when?

Posted: 15/10/2013 at 00:57

I have looked back to the start of this thread.  I too know how to prune apple trees whether summer pruning or winter pruning.  I have done plenty of both. I prune a friemd's orchard too and the crops every year are superb so my ways work.

Jim, your comments were offensive not just to Waterbutts and Berghill but to those of us who respect their views.  They gave advice based on their we all try to do.  Your attack on them was awful.  If  you disagree with them you should do so with advice of your own enabling others to decide for themselves and not attack their advice in the way you did.

The upshot is that we may lose 2 well liked members on the forum.  We don't  want to lose them. Both have been hurt by your comments....perhaps you meant well but I didn't read it like that. 

Hopefully jim you can eat some humble (apple?) pie here and do the right thing

Evening soiled

If it's 2'6" high it should move quite easily.  I would do it now while the soil is warm amd the weather is still relatively mild.  Make sure you dig around the plant enough to,get a good rootball.  Dig the recipient hole first so the move is fairly quick.

You can add a mycorrhizal powder to the base of the hole amd rest the plant directly on it.  It's supposed to aid rapid root formation.  I would also add compost of some sort to the soil when you backfill plus an organic fertiliser 

Water it very well.  It should be fine
