I have a mini orchard in the dog paddock, there are a couple of pear trees, an apple tree, I think what looks like a peach/apricot tree, a couple of nearly dead citrus (lemon/mandarin), and a plum tree in the dog yard.
I do NOTHING to them, but I'd like to find out what I CAN do! I have no idea about pruning or anything! The plum tree in the past has given me maybe 20kgs of fruit (apart from the last season when the birds got to all of them).
I was out mowing earlier and noticed the pears had fruit, most of the fruit has been eaten or nibbled on, but I managed to pick half dozen which are hard but hopefully will ripen.
So I'm thinking ahead to the next season, I've looked online, looked in bookshops but there is really nothing out there for dummies like me who haven't the foggiest!
