Event - Tree Pruning Workshop
Get to grips with tree pruning.
Our community orchard is full of maturing heritage varieties of apples, pears, plums, cherry, medlar and hazel-nut trees. With an introduction covering the what, where, when, why and how to prune fruit trees, come to the Centre and learn the skill of pruning. We will begin a pruning programme for the apple and pear trees in the community orchard. Later in the year come and help prune the stone fruit trees.
The session will be run by Karen Limbrick, a Garden Organic/Three Counties Traditional Orchard Project ‘Orchard Champion’ and member of Marcher Apple Network.
Please bring secateurs, loppers, pruning saws or bowsaws if you have them. Stout boots and gardening gloves are essential. Some tools/gloves will be available on the day.
£25 per person. Early bird booking discount of £5 if booked before 9th January 2019.
