Winter is the best time to prune your trees and the general advice is to prune them lightly each year. If you pruned the branches back too far you may not see flowers this year but you will see new growth. Don't prune off the branches that are flowering now or you won't get as many fruits this summer. Since I can't be there personally to guide you in your pruning, you may find the following publication helpful: http://aggie-horticulture.tamu...

Best wishes with your fruit trees.
