How long have you had this tree?
I see there is some green growing in the pot, It is best to remove the ground cover/weeds as they compete w/ your tree for water, Nutrients and root space.
Are you having unusually warm weather in wales for this time of year?
Or...Are you keeping this inside?
I am a bit confused by the contrast between the tree [Which looks bare, As it should be due to being dormant this time of year in your location.] And the fresh green growth coming out of the soil,,,,:?:
Crabs are deciduous and require
a dormancy. [An extended period of shortened light and colder temps, Outside is the proper place for this.]
The health of the tree requires this.

A bit more advanced info:

Looking forward to your answers.
