We have two new apple trees planted and they have just come through their first winter. I have a couple of questions for the good people here.
Is there anything I should do to help them along and get them established and after how long should they start bearing fruit. The trees are Discovery and Jupiter.
Thanks.

I'm in a similar situation, got two new apple trees that I planted up the allotment in January (ish), All I've done is made sure they're well staked and mulched and I've put some wire mesh around their bases to keep away anything that might want to munch on/pee on/scratch them. They seem to have taken really well and are just breaking out into leaves now.

I wouldn't expect fruit too soon from your trees, I was told to expect nothing until their 2nd season. I'm just going to wait and see. Apparently it's a good idea to get some thick mulch down over the winter time to protect the roots from severe weather

Thanks Emily185
Ours are breaking out into leaves now too so that seems to indicate everything is going along nicely. I think the just wait and see philosophy is the order of the day. They didn't get a thick mulch over the winter but there seems to have been no harm done, maybe a good idea to do it for next winter though.
