Worcestershire, United Kingdom
Hello! My fruit trees, all dwarf stock variety are already producing fruiting buds - no doubt the mild weather here in Worcestershire, which makes things easier for pruning. However, I usually prefer to prune late winter/early spring when sap is rising to reduce die-back in event of late hard frosts. Do I wait as usual, or do I prune now, or just do lifting, cross-overs etc now, and the spur pruning later as usual, when I would usually do both. Hope that all makes sense?!! Thank you.
