Winter pruning

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Now as you all know it is the middle of winter here in the sunny Mangamahu valley, therefore, it is time for mummy and daddy to prune the fruit trees in my playlawn orchard.  Of course, Me and Nellie had to supervise their activities for they can’t be trusted with any kind of sharp implements.  You never know what damage they could do to themselves.  Mummy forgot to take any before photos of the trees.  They seemed to be very pleased with their efforts.  Hopefully these efforts will be rewarded next autumn when it comes time to pick fruit off the trees.

  2. We don’t really know what fruit trees are supposed to look like, so we’ll take your word for it. They look GREAT! You and Nellie did a wonderful job.

    Love and licks,

    Great job mum and guys awesome snoopervising! and our apple trees are also done 🙂 it is a very satisfying job when finished :0 hope you enjoyed your walkies Jasper and Nellie hugs Fozziemum xx

  5. Have you worked on your hazelnut tree too? I thought they need no “grooming”, maybe that’s the reason because ours has NO nuts?

    Good job supervising the pruning of the trees sweet Nellie and sweet Jasper. We hope the trees bring lots of goodies to enjoy. Hugs and nose kisses

    You may have the same problem we do-you can grow certain things because you don’t have enough “freeze-days” in the winter.

    It makes no sense but they prune the trees here in the spring when the birds are nesting. Nutty
