    Just wanted to post some pictures of my brand new fruit trees. This is a new endevour for me and I'm learning it is a lot of work, but hopefully with some good rewards.

    1. First 3 are thornless blackbury bushes, can't believe they have already for leaves in them
    2. Next 2 are blueberry bushes
    3. Next is Golden delicious apple tree with a bloom in it
    4. Next is a Georgia Belle Peach tree, it just started having tiny little buds
    5. Next is a Hale Haven Peach, really happy with its progress
    6. Next is a Elberta, it's doing best of all, had no blooms or leaves when I planted it.
    7. The last one is a jubilee Peach, it's brand new just planted it today.

    Hey guys
    Just a quick question, the 6th picture is a apple tree and I have been wondering if I need to top that tree a little. It is very tall and only has blooms on the 3 lowes branches. Do you guys think it would be beneficial to trim the tips a little or is this tree to young right now to even consider that
    Thanks in advance.

    I would cut off. Above the external (not internal) bud on the plant in this case.

    You can see later if the leaves grow on these shoots. This will give a new benchmark for pruning.

    Hey Larisa
    So do you mean cut off everything above the blooms? About where the second piece of red tape is from the bottom?

    Yes, cut the top branches as I noted. The lowest branch should be removed altogether.
    Ideally, when my apple trees grow, I leave the lower branches on the trunk at a distance of 70 cm (about 30 inches) from the ground.

    Nobody argues! :D
