Winter Pruning

I have just finished the last of the winter pruning jobs for this season. I have pruned large M25 trees, vigorous mm106 apples and nice tidy dwarf m9 trees. It’s satisfying to be able to sort and tame some very big trees, many of which will need more thinning out next year as they will no doubt react with a lot of unwanted shoots. The aim of course is always to encourage healthy fruiting buds in the trees. Pears are already opening buds, so spring is on the way, so get on and finish those pruning jobs!
