I bought a medlar tree last winter which had been left to grow in its pot untrained. I think it was a two year old. It had no sideshoots, and was basically a 7ft, single shoot about an inch thick. I planted it last winter, cutting about a foot off the top. It has only grown a few small sideshoots this year and I wondered how to prune it to encourage a better shape?
