You may remember we sprouted some apple seeds in 2014 …
And they grew and grew and grew 😀
and grew 😀
And look at them now! (6ft gardener included for scale)
This one is the tallest and would be much taller but we cut it back each winter to keep it manageable.
This one is the most flourishing because it hasn’t suffered with aphids like the others have.
This one is making a comeback after ant and aphid infestations, I’ll tell you why in a minute.
And this little fella has struggled from the get-go but he’s hanging in there thanks to …
Yay! The ladybirds have arrived! And now there’s not an aphid to be seen! 😀
Our apple trees are over six years old – how time flies!
Maybe in another four we’ll get some apples 😀
Have a great day!
