Summer Fruit Tree Pruning @ Earth Trust | Little Wittenham | England | United Kingdom

Following on from our popular Winter Fruit Tree Pruning workshop, join Andy Howard to learn how to care for your trees in summer.

The session will cover topics including: the history of pruning; why we summer prune and how it maximises your fruit growth; cordons, fans, espaliers, step-overs and how to do them; how a tree grows, root stock sizes and vigour affect pruning; summer vs winter pruning.

£40 or £75 if booked together with Summer Fruit Tree Grafting (Sunday 13th August). Booking essential: book online (incurs a fee) or call during officer hours.

All funds raised go towards supporting the Earth Trust’s work.
