SOLD OUT! How To Prune Fruit Trees Workshop: Wairarapa

July 13, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

espalier quince

A workshop to boost your pruning confidence.

Good pruning = good fruiting!

Compact and productive fruit trees can happen 🙂 Though the best (and simplest) time to start is when trees are young – wild and woolly trees can be tamed too.

We’ll begin the day with all the basics: Tools, when to prune, choosing a shape, the power of training (not cutting), Years 1-4 and morning tea. Then if its fine I’ll demo on older trees, and we’ll have a go in Sue’s orchard. If its wet we’ll stay put in comfort and practice on tree size prunings!

Take home my pruning notes, and enjoy a homemade morning tea and cup of coffee.

Wear your gumboots and winter woolies.

Pruning Fruit Trees: A Beginners Guide will be available for sale.
