How to prune an apple tree


Weekend apple tree pruning following Chloe Ward’s great book How to Prune an Apple Tree, available from

I was actually using the ebook edition on my tablet so could read and take photos at the same time. Currently a bargain at £2. It has loads of 5 star reviews on Amazon and it really is easy to follow. Suitable for young and old trees.

Pruning on a garden scale is a lovely meditative experience and gives you a chance to get to know your trees better, as well as your garden wildlife. This robin was following me round the garden for an hour.
