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 at Dave and Raewyns (454 Takapu Rd, Tawa) 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 we'll pop down the road to Matt and Helens (33 Beauchamp St, Tawa) for a demo on restoring older trees. If its wet we'll stay put in the comfort of the barn and practice on tree size prunings!

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

Wear your gumboots.
