Grow Your Own / Re: Keeping apples away from rabbits

The trees are for fruit. I was a little careless in not checking their rootstock eccentricities. They and others are dotted around a paddock that we use for dog-agility training so fencing is not really a practical answer.

Interested in your Maypole suggestion. Is this a proprietary product or do I design and build?

I must admit they look a bit spindly so I'd hoick them out and start afresh.

Maypole it  - Single central post then strings to hold the branches up.
Central leader / modified central leader - Change the tree shape and keep the branches short assuming you're growing as an open centre at the moment.
Rabbit fencing around each tree.

All depends really - are the trees for fruit or for the aesthetics of a miniature tree ?

Grow Your Own / Keeping apples away from rabbits
« Last post by AlaninCarlisle on Yesterday at 11:24 »
A couple of years ago I planted three apple trees that are on root-stocks that create low-hanging branches and the local rabbit population just decimate the crop. So far I've been propping branches up with a variety of home-made devices comprised of lengths of metal tubing with Y--shaped twigs etc jammed in the top of them. Last count there were 11 such props under the trees. As this is unlikely to be a unique problem, I wondered if there was a proprietary solution I could buy somewhere. Alternatively, has anyone any thoughts on this? Anyone found a better solution?

Usually no.  Check the T&Cs but you will likely have entered into a years commitment and at best will have to pay a penalty to break the contract, and there may be no break clause.   

If you move house they will usually transfer the cover to the new place - for a fee - and assuming it a risk that they are prepared to take on.

Sorry Mrs B.  I failed to notice your birthday which you share with my now 10 year old grandson. Afraid I was rather preoccupied with helping out with hospitalised 14 year old grandson, has had an operation on the leg he broke badly on Tuesday. 🎂
