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.
