How to prune fruit trees

June 27, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Pruning your fruit trees well is essential for abundant, healthy crops. Good pruning = good fruiting! Pruning keeps your trees at a manageable height and creates a strong shape to better cope with winds and heavy crops.

This workshop is hands on – a unique opportunity to really get to grips with pruning!

I’ll teach you the right tools for the job; the nature of fruit trees and how to prune them; then you’ll get to have a go to reinforce your learning.

Wear: Garden clothes and gumboots.

Bring: Pruning kit – clean sharp secateurs, saw and loppers.

Postponement date if raining: 4 July
