    Default Crab Apples

    Now I know this is a silly question, but are the ornamental crab apples edible? (I mean for making jelly) I think I bought Golden Hornet.

    I tried jogging, but I couldn't keep the ice in my glass.

    That is not a silly question. If ornamental crabs weren't OK for jams jellies and jars then you could be in deep trouble. Yes Cupcake. Golden Hornet is one of the best.
    Why didn't Noah just swat those 2 greenflies?

    Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

    I love my Red Sentinel crab apple - but not as much as the birds do! I have posted this pic before so apologies if you have seen it already.
    Whooops - now what are the dogs getting up to?

    lovely pic jeanied

    I hope when I actually get mine in the ground they will be as fruitful, and birdful. I have a John Downie and a Golden Hornet in large buckets at the moment as it was just too wet to plant in the sodden ground when they arrived bare rooted.
