  1. Oops, indeed. Is that a cherry? What is it?

  2. Heyjude says:

    Oh, no! Too many crab apples for its own good? Too strong a wind? Hopefully bent but not broken.

  3. Cathy says:

    Oh no! What happened? Hope it stands up again!

    • Cathy says:

      It’s restaked, Cathy, and thankfully not damaged by the experience – probably a combination of wind and too many crab apples!

    Oh, that poor tree. It does not seem to be hurt though. The fruit seems too big for a flowering crabapple, but too small for a fruiting crabapple. Are they for jelly?

    • Cathy says:

      It is a young tree, Tony, but certainly well endowed with fruit. Whilst it was still small I wasn’t going to pick the fruit as it is so pretty, but I might have to after all!

  5. Christina says:

    Oh Dear! Hope it isn’t broken

  6. Anna says:

    Hope that it wasn’t in pain Cathy. No doubt you’ve administered some first aid and all is well again.

    • Cathy says:

      It had ckearly been exercising on the quiet, Anna, as it was very supple and bent rather than broke. It has been restaked and doesn’t seem to be troubled by its experience

    Oh no! Make some crab apple jelly, quick. That is one successful harvest. Hasn’t it been windy recently. My sunflowers are all leaning at 45 degrees today. Can’t decide whether to prop them up, or cut them down. Hope your tree can be pulled upright again. All the best, karen

    • Cathy says:

      The crab apples are almost too pretty to pick, Karen, but I will probably pick some this year after all in case it blows over again. No other wind damage here, though, apart from more leaves coming down

      • karen says:

        That’s true. Those crab apples look gorgeous. Mum sends her best wishes. Do we have the dates for your open gardens for next year yet 🙂 xx

        • Cathy says:

          Yes, the fruits are such a gorgeous colour – it took me a little while trying to decide which variety to choose, taking into account the colour of both blooms and fruits. Open dates are similar to this year – last Sunday in June and the Weds before it, 24th and 21st I think. Regards to your Mum as well

  8. oh no, your poor little tree. You must have had too much rain and wind for all that fruit.

  9. Brian Skeys says:

    Too much fruit for its own good this year Cathy. It is difficult with young trees, the advice is to stake low down to strengthen the trunk but that doesn’t support all the fruiting branches.
