Would you advise pruning damaged plants in wet conditions? My problem is that as most of the country, all living in my garden suffered from the past few days with continuous gale force winds and pouring rain (Lancs). Some branches of my young trees (all 2-5 years old) have been broken, other not broken but looking poorly, turned upside-down. Vegs, flowers and all the rest too suffered. Now, my question is: should I prune the damaged bits now, despite the still wet soil and plants? or should I rather wait and see if and which parts of a plant recover on their own before going ahead with the big means? If I should prune now, how far back for apple, pear, plum, cherry and soft fruit (blueberries, red and black currants, raspberries)? and what about beans and peas? Thanks for any piece of advice!
