Seasonal Maintenance

Early Summer

Summer is the main and most important growing season.

A busy, busy time; your trees are truly growing now. Regular pruning of new growth is necessary. New growth will mean the trunk and branches are growing thicker. Watch wire carefully to be sure it does not cut in and scar the bark.

Weeds grow very strongly as well – do not let them get the upper hand or they will take all the nutrients from the soil. Days are long and nights short – perfect growing conditions. Sometimes you may need to water twice in a day.

Barbecue time – do not set up barbecues near your trees, they scorch easily.
