it's a very new baby tree, planted it this spring just gone.

it had massess of blossom on, then produced baby apples which have now all fallen off (not surprised as only a baby tree). Anyway, I just noticed it hs more blossoms about to flower confused.

So. do I leave it confused to get on with it?

also does it need some sort of feeding?

Apple trees do tend to drop some of their young fruit at this time of year. It's called the 'June Drop' (even tho' its July now). I don't think it should have dropped them all tho'.
It has been a very dry spring and early summer so it could be due to that unless you have been watering it. Shouldn't need feeding if you planted it with plenty of soil improvers. I would leave it to establish itself for 2 or 3 years then hopefully it should start fruiting okay.
