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.

Thinning out weaker, surplus fruitlets helps to improve the size and quality of the final fruits.
