Winter care of apple and pear trees
From Kensal to Kilburn Fruit Harvesters
Your apple and pear trees need some winter care. Winter is the best time to prune them because that's when they're dormant. The Royal Horticultural Society website currently suggests November - March which is also annual pruning time for many shrubs.
* Be health and safety conscious: wear suitable protective clothing and have a steady ladder with an extra person to help.
* Prune on a day when no frost is present or forecast overnight.
