I live in South West Wales and my backyard garden faces south. When the weather is good it's a real sun-trap.
Last year I bought a small olive tree bearing fruit.
It is now about 4 feet tall and kept close to the kitchen wall for maximum sunlight and also warmth at night.
When should I prune it to maintain an open crown?
Is it advisable to reduce the length of fresh growth to make it bush out?
Any tips on pruning will be gratefully received.
