JUNE 2016


Most fruit trees we grow are grafted - you can usually make out the swelling near the base where the two plants have been joined together. It's important to rub or prune off all growth below the graft swelling, whenever they appear. Usually they are very spiky shoots with leaves in groups of 3 - much like the clubs symbol in a deck of cards.If you don't do this the 'bottom' or rootstock plant will take over the fruit tree you want. It will provide a nice habitat for small birds, but the fruit will not be very useful to you.
