Apple tree - what to do with this.
my first post! :-)
So, I have an apple tree in my back garden. Last year it didn't produce a single apple. This year it is absolutely laden with fruit.
Here is my problem. I am concerned that the tree seems to be hanging low even with the apples as small as they are. As their size and weight doubles and triples, will branches break?
Should this tree be cut back?
A couple of years ago the apples were mostly spoiled by bugs, and my wife does not want me to spray any pesticides. Any suggestions?
Here are a couple of pics. Thanks!!!!
