Q.Young Fruit Tree care.

Zone Prairie Grove, AR 72753 | Anonymous added on April 16, 2020 | Answered


I have a peach tree, nectarine tree, and white peach tree all planted last summer (June 2019). They have new growth by all the branches are small and they are beginning to flower. Should I pinch the buds off? And when and how should I be pruning these trees? I live in Prairie Grove, Arkansas. We are in growing zone 7b. I also have blueberry bushes I planted in June of 2019 and they have many buds that are beginning to set fruit but they don’t have too many stems and aren’t very full of foliage, should I pinch the fruit off to help them grow stronger this year? I planted them as young plants, probably a year old at the time of transplant. Attached please find photos of the blueberry bush, white peach, dwarf peach, and nectarine trees in that order. Finally, I planted (in June of 2018) several blackberry bushes. Should I be pinching the flowers/buds off those or pruning them at all? Same question for the blueberry bushes. I am a novice gardener but would love to do this right. I appreciate the opportunity to gain education!

I look forward to any advice you can provide to help with my backyard garden!
