For the longest time I have wanted to have an apple tree in our garden.
But, we don't have a big garden and not many places to put a big tree.
We visited our local garden centre today and they had miniature apple, peach and pear trees.
So I did the next best thing (I hope) and bought a miniature apple tree. If I am successful with this one I may go back and buy another one.
There is no stopping me once I get started you know :))
This is it - what do you think?
The blossoms are very pretty too.
I couldn't resist taking some pictures of them.
It has been a pretty iffy day weather wise and it has been raining (typical Easter weekend weather here I'm afraid).
This is the label that came with the tree - so this is what I can look forward to - lots of lovely red apples!!!
The only trouble is with the lack of space we have I am going to have to grow it in a pot.
I need to find a pot that is at least 24inches big. Now that is quite a big pot and I couldn't find one.
So my job tomorrow is to find a pot.
I will let you know how I get on :)
