Creating an Orchard – Saturday April 15th – 10am – 4:30pm
We are continuing to see a renewed interest in the revival of the traditional Irish Orchard and most people have fond memories of orchards from their childhood. This course will cover choice of site, layout of orchard, choosing rootstocks, soil preparation, drainage, maintenance, health and disease and choosing varieties. Soil health and improvement as well as pruning techniques will also be covered. Whether you are a farmer, a small-holder, or an apple enthusiast, this workshop will provide you with a perfect grounding. Highly recommended for beginners.
