Pruning the Apple Trees

March 1, 2011 at 12:37 am Leave a comment

I have one Jonathan apple tree and a Granny Smith that I planted in 2009 – neither have done that well so far, but I am perservering!

Anyhow, I thought it was about time to prune the apple trees – I missed “late winter” last year because I didn’t quite know when that was.  I think about now is good though (late Feb) – the buds are starting to open – or at least are showing signs of life. I got stuck on the pruning though – I had my written instructions in one hand and pruning shears in the other, but couldn’t work out which branches I was supposed to trim.  After staring and walking around the tree for quite a while (must have looked a strange sight!), I decided I didn’t know whether (or which) competing “central leader” to take out – so I took a photo instead and will seek some professional help!
