I think I may have made the biggest whopping mistake of my short gardening career. I very recently got inspired to start fixing my poor neglected orchard. I set about madly cutting all of the fruit trees back to a manageable size and then fed them some blood and bone. I awoke in the middle of the night last night and remembered reading somewhere that you don't fertilise trees immediately after cutting them, but wait till they have started sprouting new growth (ususally spring time). Does someone know whether by my misguided good intentions of getting in early I have in fact sent them to an early grave.?????
