Prune camellias by picking blooms lovely Many pardoners hesitate to pick camellia blooms because of some old wive's tale that they are better left unpicked. The California Association of Nurserymen says that camellias actually benefit from a light pruning to keep them compact and that one of the best methods of pruning is to pick the blossoms with a bit of stem attached. Young plants are better left alone, but well established camellias making good growth each year can stand a fair amount of pruning-picking. MO Sanitary Plumbing Co. 1248 S.

Some fruit free pruning pointers Whether you belive in heavy winter pruning of fruit trees or not, you can get better fruit by cutting, when you do prune, to facilitate maximum quality production. Here are a few reminders of where various fruit trees set their fruit: Apricots: The best fruit is produced on short little spurs an inch or two long on wood two years or more old. New wood may be removed almost entirely on old trees, or not at all on small trees. Nectarines and Peaches: The [center one-third of last year's growth produces the largest fruit. On an old tree, thin out about half of last year's growth and cut back about a third of the length of the remaining switches. Plums: stubby fruit spurs on .old wood produce fruit for five [to eight consecutive years. You can prune plums just like a hedge; cut them back severely over all and thin out entirely about half of the new growth. Figs: Fruit is produced on new growth, so you can cut the tree back over all as much as [necessary to make harvesting| easy. REASONS FOR BXJIT .DING OUST -A. |.
