Summer pruning, early and late

I have just pruned some of my plum tree that was sending wild new growth to the sky. I kept all the fruiting branches and they will be pruned later, when the fruit is finished. This video from Diggers is the best I have ever seen about pruning. Watch to the end, where he talks briefly about early summer vs late summer pruning.

that was a great video - I have been hearing more and more about how you can have lots more fruit trees by pruning them to a manageable size.
