Overview

Oranges and lemons are just the tip of the iceberg in your citrus orchard. Learning how to manage them, ensuring they have the right nutrients and that their flowers bud to fruition is easy if you have the know-how.

This workshop will teach you about grafting citrus, pruning your trees, as well as supporting you to grow a fabulous harvest of organic oranges, lemons, limes, finger limes and other citrus.

Our presenter is Josh Van Veen from Van Veen Organics and one of our popular presenters at Millen Farm.

The workshop will be hosted at Millen Farm where we will use our own citrus trees to demonstrate the techniques discussed.
