Pruning your fruit trees every year keeps them fruitful, improves fruit quality, and makes sure the fruit grows where you can reach it.
But there's a LOT to learn before you can feel confident—which trees should be pruned in summer, is it OK to prune a tree with leaves on it, and what does a fruit bud even look like?
This short course will answer all those questions and more, and by the end of it you'll have a thorough understanding of why it's best to prune some trees in summer (but not others), and have the confidence to do it yourself using our 10 Key Pruning Principles (in unit 3a).
