The time for any summer pruning is the last week of July and the first week of August.
This should stop re-growth from the bud that you have cut to on the one-year wood.
However, you may find that on very vigorous trees or if we have very warm weather in late August or September (or if you have pruned too early) that this bud may re-grow.
If it does then wait until it is at least one bud in length and then cut back to that bud.
It is important that you carry this out no later than the end of September as you may reduce the fruit bud formation for the next year.
