Excellent. Within the first 15 minutes everything I have done he confirms. Adjust BYOC to your situation and environment. I like when Tom says he’s not telling you how big to grow the trees. I decide that, as most of the ideas need to be adjusted depending on local environment and the needs and expectations you have.
Exactly what most of us here have done.
This is a good series, looking forward to watching it all.

Thanks for posting these MrClint. I enjoy the DWN youtube videos and I’ll have to take some time to watch these. I’ve really enjoyed DWNs backyard orchard demo video series. For those who have not seen it, it started about 5 years ago and follows the demo garden from planting, pruning, harvest through many seasons.

Tom Spellman is a wonderful personality. I’ve learned a lot from him.

I have just recently been introduced to DWN backyard Orchard Culture and, although he talks mainly about fruit in warmer zones, I can certainly see how smaller fruit trees may be advantageous in my colder climate. The low branching and smaller trees could conceivably be covered almost totally with snow and maybe this would result in better survivability of the fruiting buds. It is amazing what will live quite cozily beneath the snow cover.
