A good branch filled with buds
Time to cut some unnecessary bits off your old apple trees, everyone!
Anything that's growing straight up is not going to bear fruit so it's a short sharp snip with a good pair of clippers.
Doing this before the blossoms and leaves open is the best use of all that returning energy so get your ladders out this weekend.
Don't be afraid to take off some stuff
These whippy guys have to come off!
