Weed, feed, mulch - cont.

The rest of the orchard is now finished. All fruit trees (except for the 2 almond trees) are fed, mulched and watered. They received a good layer of compost, a sprinkling of complete fertiliser, a thick layer of pea straw as mulch and a big guzzle of water (a full watering can each).

forgot to tell you,

any fruit trees that flower madly but dont set fruit need a little
brute force. you can either hit the
trunk of each tree with a biggish stick, or tie a piece of wire quiet tight around the trunk. that tells the tree to set fruit in case it dies.

good luck
