A couple of branches on Monty Don’s apple tree have snapped under the weight of fruit, leaving ragged wounds where rot can readily set in. In this programme clip from Gardeners’ World, Monty shows you how to prune out the damaged areas and leave clean wounds that should heal over naturally and resist rotting.
