When your pears, apples, peaches, apricots, plums, bloom in the spring, they are just absolutely gorgeous. You can prune a branch and put it on the table, it’s so pretty. But all those flowers, the quantity of all those flowers can be detrimental to your tree. You don’t want too many flowers, so every year it’s important to thin the flowers off your trees. And what this does- it increases the quality of your fruit, and also it increases the quantity of the fruit that you get.
