So we took the opportunity, given that it was beautiful morning, to go down and prune the apple trees and the pear trees. We've been meaning to do it for ages - the Under Gardener has had a great deal of trouble mowing in the orchard because of low hanging branches. So we've removed those and tidied the trees up a bit. The Bramley apple no longer hangs quite so spectacularly over into next door's garden and we can move around in there a bit better. We need to sort out the blackberry canes and definitely do something about the nettles. They don't seem to worry the birds - but the nettles in particular don't seem to like me very much!
