Winter Pruning Course
February 13, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm
Weds 13th-Feb-18 from 10.30 to 4.00pm
Join experienced fruit tree and orchard pruner and the owner of the Heritage Fruit Tree Company – Andy Howard (P.G. Cert Ed) for a day’s training to learn the theory and practice of winter pruning.
Learn the theory, skills and practice of winter pruning for fruit trees such as apple and pear. Discover the different methods and techniques used to shape fruit trees, control their size and influence their productivity. Find out when and how to apply these to suit different circumstances and different types of top fruit. Learn the difference between winter and summer pruning and when and how to prune pip fruit and stone fruit.
We then practice the theory on real fruit trees to help you gain these skills yourself and confidently apply them in your own orchard, garden or community orchard. Or, why not help a neighbour or family member get their fruit trees into a productive shape?
