Fruit Tree Pruning and prep for spring

This is my first post as I am working on creating a new gardening blog and website for Red Stem. It will be fun to catalog what is happening in the garden and with the business. I hope to share lots of useful tips and inspiring ideas.
This week I have been pruning fruit trees. My hands are a bit worn from all the meticulous pruning of each fruiting branch back to a couple of buds. Adding horticultural oil and dormant spray seems like a good beginning too. It’s worth it to improve the overall health of the trees and their aspiring fruit. Best of luck to you in the garden.
