That's great, thanks guys. I think it still has the main leader and the branches are well spaced but there is about 1/3 of it which has no growth on it but that side of the tree has a black fungus on it so I'll try to identify that first! Thomzo, that's a good link, we're planning to get some more f...

Thanks guys. There's some great great stuff there so this year I'll see how it goes and keep an eye on it then it'll give me a better idea of where to start on it when I prune it.

Apple Tree Help Please!

Ok, we have an old apple tree on our plot and after chatting to the guy who had it last year apparently it doesn't produce much of a crop.
