"bagging" apple trees to promote lateral branching
talks about "bagging" apple trees to promote lateral branching (near the end of the article).
It mentions a 2- to 3-mil, small diameter, clear polyethylene sleeve that can be obtained in rolls and cut to length.
Does anyone know where this might be purchased?
Barring that, I wonder if I could cut the ends out of gallon food bags and do sections of the tree, or even individual buds.
I also wonder if this techique would be effective on cherry trees.
