Hello! Tell me, please, should the growth at the crown of a columnar apple tree be cut off? Several branches grow vertically.
Not. In colonized apple trees, fruits are formed only on the central stem. Unless, of course, you want her to not grow anymore. I have two sprouts on one colony-shaped this year from the apical kidney. I nipped one that was thinner for the sake of experiment. Next year I will find out the consequences.)
