IN BLOOM

Yesterday I noticed my mini apple tree was comming into bloom, it’s only buds so far but I expect the first flowers to open tomorrow.

Last year it only had a few blooms and no apples at all, this year it is completely covered in buds so I am hopefull.

This small apple tree is ideal for small spaces and can even be grown in a pot on your balcony, you can even make a hedge when you put a few in a row. The one I have is called ‘minitree Redlane’ and it doesn’t need another apple tree to get fruit.

But cos they are so pretty I bought another one last year, it had pretty white flowers last year and no apples but this year I can’t see any buds…maybe next year hey !

The Redlane has pretty dark pink buds.

MY NEW APPLE TREE

A few years ago I got a mini apple tree as a present and I wanted another one to keep it company.

THIS IS MY “OLD” MINI APPLE TREE, IT IS VERY COMPACT AND DOESN’T NEED PRUNING.

THIS IS MY NEW MINI APPLE TREE, IT HAS A COMPLETE DIFFERENT SHAPE, JUST ONE STEM AND DOESN’T NEED PRUNING EITHER.

THEY BOTH CAN GROW IN A POT ON A BALCONY IF YOU DON’T HAVE A GARDEN.

Have a great weekend all !!

PROMISES PROMISES

Last year I had about the same amount of flowers on my mini apple tree and I had only 1 fully grown apple, I could have had 2 but my grandson plucked one when he thought it was ripe when it was the size of a ping-pong ball !! So I am looking forward to this years “crop” 😀
