    Stone fruits in the landscape are a novelty here in Phx. Although they do very well here if you get the right varieties with low chill hours. I always get confused on which varieties get cut back and how much and what blooms on what years growth. I am trying to get it all down on paper for future use I found information on grapes this morning and did a short paper now I just need info on Peaches, Plums, Apricots and Almonds. While we are at it what about Pears and Apples. I have attach my grape pruning paper for everyones use would appreciate any help thx. View attachment Pruning Grapes.doc

    Why don't you just call the cooperative extension office? Or browse their site? This should have some of what you need. http://cals.arizona.edu/pubs/garden/mg/fruit/index.html Its easier to just call down there sometimes though. You can get all the material you want already printed for you.
