    I think that the pruning event was earlier last year. Is there a right or wrong time of year to prune?

      Hi Jon. Generally speaking you can prune fruit trees as follows:
      *Free-standing fruit trees or bush trees, such as those grown in an orchard should be pruned when they’re dormant, in winter.
      *Trained trees, such as espaliers, cordons, pyramids and fans should be pruned in late August or early September.
