    Hi, loved your video! One question though, how many times do you summer prune? And does it have to be in early it late summer? Or does it even matter?

    Hi Tony…been binge watching your vids. Do you have any tips on how to prune tip bearing apples? I have 2 fuji apples trees and I haven't figured out how to prune it right other to take water sprouts off. Still prune in summer for fruit next year? Thanks so much!

    I planted 4 Apple cordon maidens last year and pruned a third off after planting, as suggested by the grower. They haven’t put on as much growth as yours, very little in fact. So I hope I can prune it correctly, as there isn’t much top growth to tie in. I had a lot of aphids on them and did spray with soap several times. Any idea how I can deal with them?

    Great work – I'm sure one day I will get round to planting some fruit trees but I pruned my old ones off at the roots and now we have a lawn there, lol.
    We've got some woodland to fell over the next 6 months or so and that will be the site (hopefully) for a vegetable / fruit garden

    Excellent Tony. I have not been able to get to my trees to prune as they are absolutely covered in wasps. I put up 5 – homemade wasp traps which have caught hundreds and hundreds. Getting better now so won't be long before I can get in amongst the trees.

    Glad to see you back, I severely pruned my fruit trees during the drought to reduce the stress on the trees.

    Hi Tony Good to see you back. I planted 2 apple, 1 pear and 2 plums in big pots last autumn. None of them have done anything this year. As they were new from the garden centre I did not prune them. If I prune them now do I also need to prune them in winter?

    Great video again tony, :), any advice on my current bushes? I have two, they were moved from a different plot around April of last year and they were absolutely huge don't think they had ever been pruned. I totally butchered them back to about 1ft tall and 1ft wide. They have grown lovely this year but no fruit. What do you suggest going forward? Xx

    Excellent video. Good to see you back and looking better. I have twelve apple trees in my garden, cordons, espaliers, step over and dwarf bush. Three of the espaliers are over 30 years old and are Laxton Superb, Lord Lambourne and Crispin, the last one rarely producing any fruit but always makes plenty of growth. The other varieties I can remember the names of are Discovery, Claygate Permain, Blenheim Orange, Egremont Russet and Merton Knave. These are usually reliable croppers so we can enjoy apples throughout the season.

    Thanks for this video. I've been pruning my 5 year old apple tree in winter but getting massive growth on new branches. I'll try your method this year. I have a question however – my delicious yellow apple tree gets infested with worms every year and I loose about 99% of the crop — I've tried dormant spray in deep winter year before and just before blooming this year but still get the worms. Do you have a video on spraying for worms? I'm an organic grower so don't want to use harmful chemicals.
