How to Prune an Apple Tree

  • Price: £5.00

An excellent little book that starts with understanding your tree and the effect of pruning. The rest of the 30 page book  takes the reader through three stages

- formative pruning early in a trees life to get them into fruiting. This can be applied to the trees we supply.

- maintenance pruning to get a balance of growth & fruit production once the trees have developed their shape and are into fruiting.

- restorative pruning to improve older trees vigour, shape & fruiting. Older trees can become out of shape or unproductive. Neglected trees may have become oversized or congested. All will benefit from restorative pruning.

A very understandable book that will give confidence to any reader. Though aimed particularly at apple trees the principles apply to pear trees aswell.
