2009

1 Johnathan apple

3 Granny Smith

10 Golden Delicious

During the winter of 2009 the trees had a good spread of blood and bone and a load of compost. During the spring they were also watered with Trichaderma Plus. Apart from the very hot beginning to the year - 3 days in a row over 45 Degrees and one over 47 Degrees the weather has been much wetter and the trees have grown very well.
