Suggestions for supporting an apple tree
I will have to thin this little tree's buds or I will have no branches, small apples and very little flavors. I would like to hear some suggestions on supporting the branches to prevent them from breaking. This tree is in a container and is 3 years old. It's an anna apple.
Also, how to detour the pesky possum's. Last year, they got way too many apples. This year I need some type of solution without harming the critters. Trapping and moving them to a different location will be my last resort.
