Fourth Year Growing


Young trees are branch trained in the orchard each spring.

As the young trees grow each year we want the new branches to be close to horizontal.  This position is best to control tree vigour and encourages a regular fruit set.

We perform this operation on each new tree in the first spring of planting.  The spring flush growth is driven by high sap flow which make the brances flexible and easy to bend.
