    Well I was lucky enough to get an apple tree for xmas. Since xmas day it has been sitting in our conservatory (unheated). I was wondering if I should keep it outside in it's pot or leave it in the conservatory? How often should I water?

    It will be a few weeks before I can plant it in the ground at the allotment.

    If it was bought from an outside supplier, then keeping it in doors might bring it into premiture growth. If you have a sheltered outside area, I would advise putting it there until you can plant it at your alotment.

    Default What variety?

    What variety did veryone get? Does anyone know whether a pear can be cordoned? Will certainly let evryone know how the archway goes on. Will start to prepare the ground in february, plenty of soil and bonemeal.

    Out of interest, I have really hard, compacted sub soil, does anyone know where I can get a metal rod/spike that I can drive in? I want to break it up but can't use a matlock (due to spinal problems and a digger is way to big).
