This summer most of my 6-10 year old orchard (on seedling rootstock) is starting to
produce fruit, thankyou nafexers for so much help back when I got started! I've decided
it's time I learned about summer pruning. One thing I haven't understood is how Modified
Lorette works in Z3a.
Should I wait till each tree has put on terminal buds, or just before? In cutting water
sprouts off it is not clear to me just how high to leave them for this zone - is the idea
to get a water sprout to fruit only right at the branch juncture where the circle of
leaves are - to turn it into a 6" tall fruiting spur? or?
