Pruning a neglected cherry tree

Posted: 09/08/2012 at 22:02

I have a year old cherry tree too that I haven't done anything to yet.  It has been growing in a pot on my patio until now & although it blossomed it produced just 2 cherries.  We are soon to transfer it to the garden so that it has a bigger space for it's roots & thanks soton geoff as I shall use your info when I try my hand at pruning it.

This is my first attempt at growing a Clematus & it is climbing well.  I'm not sure how to prune it as not sure which bits are dead & I'm also afraid to cut off where it grows from as the main stem is just a single very, very thin stem & could be broken so easily.  I have a gnome standing just where it comes out of the ground & daren't move him as he seems to be guarding against it being attacked!

It's now in it's third year of blooming, is climbing further up an old wall & doing well. As it's at the bottom of my garden, it gets very little attention & I have never pruned it.  It seems to do well left to it's own devices.
