Subject: RE: BS: Hedgerows and Verges
Ours is a pretty young tree. We did make a big mistake of a different type with this one. It was a very heavy cropper from day one and we failed to thin the fruit it couldn't support. It lists a bit and we can have props under some branches. Maybe one day, it will fall over ? I don't know? All I do know is that while it provides us with a consistent (actually far in excess) crop (much of what we want cooked and frozen for pies, crumbles etc. throughout the year), it has a place here.
