Q.Early pruning of greengage
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.
