Q.Early pruning of greengage

Zone DT4 7QQ | roblox added on March 17, 2019 | Answered

Young, about three years, greengage. It has nice goblet shape of four branches. It’s early March and all along each branch are new and small buds. Each no more than 2cm. Will it hurt the tree to ‘rub’ off the buds facing into the centre? Thinking that this will give the others more energy and save pruning when they are longer.

There is nothing wrong with this at all! I believe it would focus energy to where you want it. Go for it!
