November 2023 – garden orchard update

From November, apple and pear trees can be pruned, but the task can be performed at any time up until March. It is now too late to prune apricots, peaches, nectarines, cherries and plums. Orchard hygiene is important to prevent the possibility of fungal infections. This is a good time to apply winter wash to protect cherry and plum trees from bacterial canker. Ensure that the trees are protected against rabbits, muntjacs, deer and so forth. Canker on apples and pears can now be seen and cut away. Click here to read more fruit tree care tips for November.
