Tom Spellman conducts the first summer pruning of 2013 in the new DWN Backyard Orchard Culture demo planting, showing home growers how to get it done by keeping it simple. The main objectives of summer pruning are 1) tree size control for ongoing easy maintenance and 2) air circulation and sunlight penetration in the canopy for healthy, productive trees and better fruit. Tom also samples some of the fruit in season: Burgundy plum and Tropic Snow peach.
