Choosing the right apple tree.
Recently I received a question from a listener. The listener asked me what apple tree would I recommend for an exposed site in North Yorkshire. As I live in the south UK I could pretty much grow any type of apple tree that was available. However in North Yorkshire there turned out to be a little less choice. With all this in mind, I researched and share my research with you and listener to help her choose.
I mention that should anyone else listening have any suggestions then please leave a comment below or Email me.
