It’s that fruitlet thinning time of year again! Grab your sharpest snips and head on down to your orchard.
With apple fruitlets a little on the small size, it was time to re-thin the pot-grown apple trees.
A short post with photos to demonstrate the benefits of removing excess fruitlets. (Again with the fruit thinning..!)
If your fruit trees aren’t carrying much fruit after an amazing harvest in 2020 then don’t worry, it’s quite natural.
Now is a the best time to hand-thin apple fruitlets, particularly on smaller trees and definitely on any that are growing in pots.
