It’s Growing

Friday turned out to be a pretty awful day, cold and cloudy with some heavy rain shower in the evening.

In the autumn last year we received a new apple tree - Baya Marissa - from Spalding Bulbs which was potted up and left in the greenhouse over winter. The pot was wrapped in bubble wrap to protect the roots from frost. I've been concerned that the tree had shown no signs of coming into live but at last the buds are starting to swell showing that the little tree has survived through winter.

  1. I got one of those too but planted it directly into the ground at the allotment. It is starting to show signs of growth aswell. Looking forward to seeing how it grows.

    1. I think ours might stay in a large pot at home. Don't suppose we should let it have any fruit this year though.
