SOLD OUT! The Happy, Healthy Fruit Tree Workshop

November 30, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

apples summer

In order to carry abundant crops, fruit trees must be healthy and strong… today is your fruit tree’s lucky day!

Deciduous trees eg: apples, peaches, plums, apricots, pears, persimmon, are our focus here.

  • How to thin fruit. What a difference thinning makes! Thinning keeps the pressure off your trees and creates steady cropping year after year. I’ll show you how so you can go home and do your own trees.
  • Biological sprays. My favourite! These sprays keep your trees and the ground around them fighting fit. I’ll also explain fungicides – copper and lime sulfur – if and when you need them and how best to use them.
  • Best mulches, foraged mulch and homegrown mulch
  • Herbal ley. Everything does better in a community. We’ll look at groundcovers, nitrogen fixers and all round cool companion plants that’ll take your orchard next level.
  • Fruit trees in bags. Especially for smaller sections, I’ll introduce you to the wonder that is the Evergrow bag. Check out my figs and cherries!
