Summer pruning in the fruit garden:

Tips and tricks

July is not only a harvest month but also the month when certain fruit varieties may be pruned. Strong shoots above the fructifying branch and weaker shoots at the bottom of peach trees should be removed.

Now it is also time for removing suckers from blackberries. This means, that the lateral shoots are cut back. Sweet cherries can be pruned after the last harvest as the cuts heal especially well in July.
