3. Pruning Fruit Trees - Sets you up for the Year
We are coming up to Pruning time. Once your trees are fully deciduous in June or July the best thing you can do for your deciduous trees, is give them a prune, mulch and fertilizer. This is probably the most important thing you will do to your fruit trees to ensure they are productive in the coming year. Its a cool time of year, so make time on your gardening calender to get this job done before they break bud in August and September. Pruning isn't as difficult a task as one may imagine. Don't be afraid just do it. You will make more mistakes by not doing any pruning at all, so get your secateurs and get out in the orchard and have fun.
Here are some good links to pruning to get you started.
