Bought this book from Book Depository just now:

Grow a Little Fruit Tree (Paperback)
By (author) Anna Ralph

How to keep trees small by pruning—think will need this for the cherry trees! Bought a book on how to grow cherry trees, won’t hurt. The “Grow a Little Fruit Tree” book was highly recommended so have some hopes. Colt can be grown as fans—BIG fans. Oh well.

Ordered 8 cubic metres pine chips. That will see all the rows where the cider apple and cherry trees (+ perry pears?) will get covered with pine chips. That will start amending the clay soil. With the soil in the rows covered the sun can’t bake the clay and soil critters—worms, ground beetles/spiders etc—will eat the chips and drag them into the soil, amending it.

One whole row and three quarters of a second row have already been covered—I had made an egregious error in calculating the amount of chips needed :oops
