We planted two apple trees last year, and they are both still alive, though one seems to be doing better than the other. It was a REALLY hot summer and I think that they got more heat and less water than they wanted.
This one is the one that is not doing as well. It doesn’t have any fruit and part of it looks like it just got scorched.
Parts of it look okay, though, with green leaves growing on normal-looking (as far as I can tell) wood.
You can see the contrast there. I’m not sure what to do about it – need to do more research. If anyone knows more about this, please share!
Happily, the other one has several teensy little apples, so it’s at least trying!
It’s definitely a tiny start, but baby steps, right?
