My Photoshop has recently upgraded to the 2023 version, but the entire 2022 package is still there in my Applications folder. Should I delete this folder and its contents? Normally when applications upgrade I am asked if I want to over write the existing app, but this didn't happen, so I now have 2 versions of Photoshop.

I'm on a Macbook Air running Ventura 13.0.1.

The install policies changed to leave the previous version in place. You can chnage the behavior in the CC app settings. That's also from where you should correctly uninstall any such older versions instead of just trashing them. Regardless, reinstalling 2023 once more may be necessary after that.

Thanks @Mylenium  
It's strange because I just checked my CC settings, and both PS and Bridge are set to 'remove older versions', but this hasn't happened. I guess I should just leave the 2022 version however, as @gener7 says, something could go wrong with the new version!

You can always roll back a number of versions using Adobe Creative Cloud.

If you wish to roll back to an older version, use the Creative Cloud application, click on the three dots (...) and select “Other Versions”.

It's always good to have backup. Something goes bad with 2023, you'll want that previous version in place. And since you have MacOS, you have Time Machine.  Set it up if you already haven't.

You don't need the older version, and when deleting it, please DO use the uninstaller in the CC app, as @Mylenium says. 
THAT being said - I always keep the older version installed (they don't interfere with each other, they just take up space), until I've put the new version through its paces. Having the older version gives you a "backup" to use, should something be not as expected, or just not working, in the new version.
