Evening all,having had an apple tree bought for my 40TH off my son in November. It has taken well and is producing plenty of flowers,but I am worried about the amount of fruit it might produce as the branches don't look strong enough to hold 1 apple let alone a bunch!
I also have a Victoria plum tree that was planted the same time and looks a few years behind the apple tree.
Is a wierd shape with long branches down low.Should these be trimmed off to allow the tree to grow up as opposed to a bush?
Again the branches are really thin and could never hold a pub let alone a bunch!
Seeking the green fingered experts on how best to look after the trees.
