Apple Tree Pruning
I planted several young trees last winter and wrongly assumed that any neccessary pruning would already have been done by the nursary.
When the trees came into leaf in the spring the branches coming out from the main stem were bare for about three feet with leaves, blossom and fruit right at the ends of the branches. Needless to say the fruit weighed down the branches and needed supporting. clearly some drastic action is required.
I'm about to prune them but don't really know how to remedy the situation. any help would be much appreciated.
