Update on the Ur apple.
The Wild apple is somewhere between a bush and a tree and Rog is certainly bushin’ out nicely.
It’s amazing the growth in just 12 months. This tree started life in a pot under a hedge in Deakin’s meadow. After a few years under the hedge it was ready to stretch its legs, and now he’s off.
Still waiting for flowers and fruit but it’s looking very healthy. Not bad for a tree/bush that’s had such a journey.
Extract from Wild Wood by Roger Deakin where he collects the seeds from the Tian Shan.
A very excellent read, not just for tree lovers.
