A workshop to boost your pruning confidence.

Good pruning = good fruiting

Compact, productive trees can happen. Though the best (and simplest) time to make this happen is when trees are young - wild and woolly trees can be tamed too.

I'll demo a mix of pipfruit - a young apple in training, an established apple and a free standing pear. We'll check out the espaliers and the stonefruit as well.

An opportunity to buy my pruning book.

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

Wear your gumboots.

Because pruning can only happen on a dry day, we'll have to be flexible. Postponement date is Saturday 14th July.
