Fruit tree pruning service

Pruning fruit trees by pruning shears

This winter we are pruning our member’s and viewers’ fruit trees as we have done for the last 3 years


Renovating old fruit trees and bushes has become a bit of a speciality of the GardenAdvice team over the last few years.
The UK and Ireland are full of old fruiting trees grown in the later victorian period and the early 70s when growing your own fruit trees and bushes were very popular. A lot of these older trees are from varieties no longer grown by the nurserymen and so are not stocked at your local garden centre.
The key often is in two stages, the initial pruning and feeding making sure you do not remove any more than a third of the tree or shrub on the first prune. Then followed up by thinning out the new shoots are they grow in the spring. Feeding although not complicated is also a key element in restoring an old fruit tree or shrub.
Many of the owners of the best unnamed or forgotten fruit trees and brushes have been kind enough to provide us will some cuttings for our orchard and fruit growing projects.
