An interesting idea that still has potential, but mistakes (many mistakes) were made. Time to reboot.
With apple fruitlets a little on the small size, it was time to re-thin the pot-grown apple trees.
Thinning out weaker, surplus fruitlets helps to improve the size and quality of the final fruits.
A healthy display of blossom should hopefully mean a few fruits to enjoy later in the year.
In which we plant out our new fruit trees into air-pot containers.
