Pruning

Posted: 15/11/2016 at 17:16

I have a 10 year old tree.The branches have grown to tall for me to reach the fruit without the step ladder.


At present next year fruit is at the top of the branches..


I am wondering what would happen if i cut the branches down to say half the length.


Would i destroy the tree?Stop any more fruit from growing


Or just stop any fruit for next year only.


Can anyone help please.

This week it is as someone has thrown a switch and everything in the veggie garden has come to an end all at once. Runner beans,cucumbers tomatoes beetroot. Also the sweetpeas have finished and cleared ready to plant again next year. 


There is a reason for it, the weather in north cornwall has turned cold during the nights. Very heavy rain for 24 hours yesterday( i had the job of walking the dog twice and got soaked). Not wonder the plants have given up.


I cant complain has i have had a very good crop this year. 


How are you getting on with the close of season.????????

Agave

Yes it does. Not a plant to fall out with. Very sharp points. My friend wont have one in her garden because of the dog chasing around. Fortunately mine is in the front garden  when the dog is on the lead

Agave

My story of the agave plant. It was here when i bought the house 10 years ago.The age is about 15 years old. It has never flowered. I dont do anything with it.The height of the tallest leave is 3ft. It is very dangerous as each leave has really Sharp points all the way around. Fortunately it is in the front garden away from any children and dogs. I live in north cornwall, where the climate is wet and not very cold in the winter.
