Tips for you Fruit Trees in Winter

Make sure Tree Guards are intact around the base of young Apple, Pear and other Fruit Trees. Rabbits can wreak havoc at this time of year and they love a bit of tender bark to nibble on!

Remove any mummified fruit, from Fruit Bushes and Fruit Trees to reduce any risk of infection. Check any stored Top Fruit regularly and remove any that are beginning to go mouldy or rotten - you can add these to your bird table, the birds will be very grateful!

If there has been a heavy fall of snow, take a bit of time to knock the snow from the branches of Fruit Trees and bushes to prevent them breaking under the weight.
