Winter Pruning in the Orchard – Saturday 3rd December – 10am to 4.30pm

This workshop gives a detailed and practical introduction to formative, maintenance, restorative and disease pruning. Through theory, orchard observations and pruning demonstrations this course is designed for people with no previous pruning experience. By the end of the day you will have the skills to make informed pruning decisions on a wide range of trees. The main tree shapes discussed are open-centre (bowl shape) and central leader (christmas tree shape). As much of the afternoon will be spent outdoors, weatherproof and extremely warm clothing (particularly warm footwear) is absolutely essential and bring a pen and notepad.
