This picture shows where I left non degradable grafting tape on the Adam’s Pearmain tree for the whole of the last growing season.
The tape has restricted the growth of the girth and also the height of the tree.
I had negleted to remove the tape off about 15 of my trees in the nursery. All with a similar result.
I must either make sure I remove any tape I use during the summer or use the degradable parafilm tape!
