zero-order branch - is shoots that aredirectly from the root of the land. This is the most valuable and productive branches. such branches length should be 30-40 cm. It is possible to collect from them the highest quality and abundant harvest. Escape - a branch that has grown during the last summer. In winter shoots shed their leaves, and the next year is already full-fledged branch. In the zero-order stem has a branch - a branch of the first order. Stems from a second-order branches depart third order. There are also fruit shoots.


Red and white currants are more restrained growth of zero branches

When planting currant bushes are cut mostweak branches at their base, the other shoots - 3-4 buds. In the autumn pruning should strive to ensure that the zero-order shoots and branches in currants was 15-20.

In the first two years, there is a rapid growth of the plant. From 3 to 5 years, growth is slowing down, while the yield from 5-year-olds branches bare. At zero annual branches much more fruit and growth buds.

Pruning of fruit trees and shrubs is done to maintain the bush in a normal sanitary condition and to stimulate the growth of zero and first order shoots branches.

Peg-top-buoy shoots - it sprouts, which are directed upwards sharply, and they thicken the crown. They have a lot of fruit formation, but such branches crop yield is only 1-2 years.

The more glucose is produced in the leaves, the more nutrients the roots of the shrub land transfer, the higher the quality of the crop. Bush bears fruit also on small twigs and buketnye short annuals.

In the summer of currants are not pruned. Currants over 15 years to rejuvenate it makes no sense, it should be removed. In its place, plant new bushes.

Useful buckthorn

The bush is dioecious, that is, there are male and female plants. For pollination of 4 female trees thrown one man.

  • As the growth of the tree need to ensure that the tops of the shoots do not overlap, do not rub against each other.
  • One trunk do not do a lot of wounds.
  • If the plant grows quickly, occasionally cut the end of the tip to hold back growth.
  • The adult plants prune the upper branches with a lateral branching.

At sea buckthorn powerful, well-developed rootshoots. When the plant reaches the age of 15, his dig, and instead leave one escape from the undergrowth. To the roots do not spread through the garden in the ground digged roofing, slate and more. N.
