Thank you all for your ideas, a great help.

My husband and I love to garden, we are on our own but have a few years before retirement so it will be a slow process.

We dont mind high maintenance, deep flower beds, greenhouse, wildlife.

I think the general consensus is to leave it now until the spring and spend winter thinking of what we can do.

Thanks Dovefromabove and Berghill.

Will try both!

What's the weather like in your area?

It's been dry and very cold, but grey skies in Suffolk.

We have several quite old fruit trees in the garden we have just moved to.

When we moved in it was July , but there wasn't too much fruit on them and we were wondering about pruning?

Can anyone suggest just how much to prune, (considering they are so old)

and when to prune?

many thanks

Christopher 2- sorry, dont know what you are talking about.

Everyone thank you for your tips.

The plot has been untouched for a number of years now.

We do have a summer house at the end of the plot. I will try to send some photographs of it. Thanks again.

We have just moved to a new home with just over a 3rd of an acre of land.

It is a blank canvas apart from some very old fruit trees down one side.

I think my husband, who normally is very keen gardener, is a little daunted and doesn't know were to start!

Any advice please
