I plan to write an ebook
about pruning...in 5 to 10 years. So far, I feel like I've gotten
the hang of training and pruning
young peaches to the open center system, and this year I'm
experimenting with maintenance pruning a mature peach.
Our younger peaches needed
more TLC. The one above should have gotten a bit more love over
the summer since the watersprouts coming up from the rootstock made the
main trunk lean. Except for removing the watersprouts, I barely
did any cutting, focusing on training my scaffold branches
instead. Remember --- the more you can train instead of prune,
the fewer watersprouts you'll have next year and the faster your tree
will achieve maturity.
Our chicken waterer is the POOP-free solution to filthy traditional waterers.
