‘Best way' to prune for healthy plants – ‘prevents disease’ and makes job ‘much easier’

“Always make sure you’re wearing gloves to protect yourself when you rub down the blades with disinfectant.”

Autumn is known as the perfect time to prune fruit bushes and trees.

Kate explained: “Autumn is a great time to prune fruit bushes such as gooseberries, redcurrants and blackberries. 

“They will benefit from being cut back hard – and this is a great opportunity to take cuttings.”

To do this, just pop a shoot into the ground and let it take root. 

However, gardeners should ensure that they use heavy duty gloves as some of these plants can be sharp.
