    They say prune on a hot, sunny day. Not on damp wet day.

    Nice pruning job, hope the trees are doing well. I like to put exterior wood glue on my pruning cuts, seems to help them heal better.

    Hi. Thank you for your willingness to share videos BUT it was a pain to watch you butchering those trees (I say it in a joking way) we all have to learn some how (I am also a learner).

    My suggestions would be :
    -You want fruits but also size management because they are very close planted so … prune them in summer (june/august) – after fruits are picked. This way you can manage the growth. If you prune in winter, you will just get more growth next year.
     
    -The fruits in peaches, apricots and plums develop on last years's wood, so … do not remove it all – as you did in the spring – if you look closely that single peach was formed on the stubs you left in spring. If you would have left more wood there, you would have had more fruits.

    nice job anyway. thanks for posting and the followup. Maybe this spring you will do another vid. or make a picture and ask viewers which branch to cut 🙂

    Loved and Subbed. This summer I had my first avocado. I also have Tamarind, Lemon, Coffee, Papaya, Sour sop,Tangerine and a Mango-Pineapple. I'm planning to grow more tree but need to find space since I grow other things like lettuce peppers ect. I'm disable and I'm trying to show the people that there's no excuse for not growing healthy non pesticide food. Love your garden. You have so much plants growing. Keep up the great work

    Nice tree's AL! specially that one apple tree!

    +Evolve432 -You're right, those apples are really tight. But they are columnar apples and that's exactly what you'll get with that apple type. It's pretty cool! Thanks for the warning about the tree roots. I'm not concerned about the pear tree in this particular location. In some spots it would be a bigger concern and of course some types of trees will get much much larger with more aggressive root systems. So it's a good point to remember. The peaches and apricots are being trained to keep them low and compact. It's called Backyard Orchard style and I think it's a great fit for urban gardens.
