Pear tree advice

Hi everyone, 

I'm new to this site (& gardening) and in need of some advice to a pear tree I have acquired when moving house. 

It looks a little worse for wear to be honest and just wondered if a good prune this winter will help it along? 

It has already blossomed and fruit beginning to show.

Many thanks



  • Your pear tree sounds quite good to me, I've had no blossom this year probably because of the cold spring and I'm a bit windswept up here! The link below gives some guides for pruning pear trees, I would probably just cut out any bits that look dead - easier to spot now that the tree is in leaf - and then just a tidy up in the winter.
