You evil, ignorant plant pruners!
Don't you know you are reducing yields?
Oh wait, your pictures show otherwise. lol
Sorry, I've been beat up here in the past for daring to espouse single stem growing.
I was thinking the other day, the commercial fruit tree and grape guys do a similar method.
People would be stunned to see what a peach tree is pruned to look like. And they are loaded with fruit.
They don't let the plants express their natural form or let them grow rampant and wild.
And that's ok!
I think some people feel plants are like animals and that it is mean to prune them because that is abuse and plants have feelings. Or that changing the natural shape or tendency of a plant is unnatural or takes the plant out of its natural state and who are we to control nature.
