Event description

Description

Need some direction with pruning your fruit trees?
How much do I prune?
Which branches should I cut off... and which should I leave?

This workshop will start with the theory of pruning, why and how to do it to promote strong healthy growth and best fruit production on good size manageable trees.

You'll learn why some pruning is done in winter and some in summer, then you'll have a chance to practice pruning on real trees.

Pruning tools selection and care is also covered.
