Last September my dog Smudge took a fancy to the apples on this Malus. He waited for them to ripen first of course 🙂
Here it is before he munched them.
and the guilty looking culprit.
This is the tree today. A few of the more mauled branches didn’t have any tip buds to open. I have been watching it for signs of new buds and today I founds loads. It looks as if it will back bud strongly, perhaps Smudge did me a favour 🙂
and some of the flower buds. I was going to remove them but to be honest the tree is responding that strongly, I don’t think I’ll bother for now. I might remove the fruit if that changes.
