My small apple tree had around 200 superb apples on it this year - most of them are wrapped in newspaper on a garage shelf.
Now I suppose it needs a good pruning but not really sure where to start. Any advice would be appreciated.




I guess I should have taken the photo against a clear background.

Google Pruning apple trees Hank. Loads of info. There'll probably be a video somewhere among them as well. Good luck!

the RHS advice pages on pruning are very clear. in fact in this months edition there is an article on pruning apples. I have left it open for hubby!

I need to research this topic too Hank...I'd like to keep mine small enough for me to reach them.

Take a look at the apple trees in my Apple Blog to get a sense of what your tree should look like when you are done pruning. The idea is to get as much sun into the canopy as possible.
More sun = More apples.

Here is the link:
