Sheryn’s tip: trees that get big do better


Big trees are more robust and need a lot less maintenanc­e than trees on dwarfing rootstock or those pruned to a smaller size. The bigger the tree, the bigger its roots and crown, the more it photosynth­esises sunlight, the more nutrients it takes up, the healthier it is, and the more fruit it produces.
