cheery tree prouning
What about it? Presume you're asking 'when?'. Unless vital, then the answer is you usually don't have to. IF you HAVE to, then mid-late summer, so that the wounds heal properly (but without a flush of sap). Winter and early spring pruning can cause the tree to 'bleed' extensively, and render the tree liable to Silver Leaf, a fungal disease. Worthy

Now this is irresistible - as I'm assuming you're not asking for tips on how to be cheerful while pruning (whistle a happy song?), you must be asking about pruning a cherry tree. One question - what kind of cherry - grown for its fruit, or ornamental, hedging or a single tree?
Sing Cherry Ripe, cherry ripe'?
I did notice 'cheery' and presumed 'cherry', but Bamboo, you may be right. What a great idea, cheery pruning, to go with happy hoeing, and magical mowing? Worthy
And delirious digging?
And lots of happy harvesting :-)
I'm defo a cheery prouner chaps, and a most inefficient one!
Sorry Slimboy, you'll have to forgive us - we're all a bit stir crazy from not being able to do any gardening!
I often whistle while I prune...right up until I nip my finger!!
At which point, Tugbrethil, if you're anything like me, the air acquires a distinctly blue tinge...

Cheery prouning is better in any case than depressing digging or sad sowing or miserable mulching. Still one can always go ho ho hoeing or of course gleeful gardening.
Owdboggy, you're on form. But that's enough, move on! Worthy
Nah, this is fun and as the white stuff is back...
peaceful potting on
I'm with MG & Owd on this Worthy - sorry but it's hard to shut up once u r on a roll, lol.
I'm still waiting for an answer to my original question, which was on subject - maybe Slimboy's got fed up, or hasn't noticed...

Ah well some folk only log in on a very occasional basis and we 'have' been naughty!
How do I say thanks?
