Just cherry trees can still be in this season blend . This slows down the growth of the trees and at the same time increases fertility. The summer is the growing season of the plant and is therefore particularly suitable for blending.
In addition, the cuts in the summer can heal better and are less susceptible to bacteria or fungus.
Old shoots have to give way
The flower buds of the cherries are found on the two- to three-year-old shoots. If, therefore, the old shoots are not cut off, the young ones can not receive light and produce no fruits. In addition, the fruits will gradually be found on the crown. With the right blend you can avoid this.
For this you first have to remove the side shoots, which grow into the interior of the crown. The drooping side shoots should be removed afterwards. However, one must always pay attention to the preservation of the younger branches. They are particularly fertile and can bear many flowers next year.
After the cut
After the cut, you still have to pass the cuts. However, only those who are larger than a two-euro coin should be considered. In every garden market you can get wound closure products for this purpose. Before wiping the bark with a knife, the wound can heal faster.
