I have a very large' Bramley Seedling' cooking apple tree. It's still producing loads of apples. I just need advice on when it is best to give it a really good prune. It's so large I can't reach half the apples anymore.
Renovating old trees should be done over a number of years. If you cut too much off at once, it will send up a lot of non fruiting watershoots.
Thanks fidget bones
I have pruned my bramley but a lot of long thin shoots have grown what do i do with them, cut them off, or cut them back??
