Things to do in the garden during lockdown day 91: prune the apples

Summer pruning apples will improve next years harvest and the quality of this years crop.


I missed out on pruning my rather large apple trees earlier this year, so I have had the wonderful team from Gardenworks over to give the trees a summer hair cut.


Not only does summer pruning reshape the chaos, it opens up the canopy and lets more light in so this year's fruit will be sweeter and next year's harvest will be more bountiful.
