Event description
Come along to learn the basics of pruning of young apple and pear trees with Alan Thornton.

About this event

Formative pruning is important to help young fruit trees grow to be healthy and fruit plentifully. From the session you will understand more about the theory and practice of winter pruning and meet some new people.

Participants will receive a copy of Chloe Ward's excellent pruning guide "for real people with imperfect trees".

If you can, please bring a sharp pair of secateurs and dress for the outdoor weather!

This is part of a programme of short training courses that you might also be interested in: restorative pruning; bench grafting; top grafting; scything; summer pruning & bud grafting.

We want this event to be accessible for as many people as possible, so tickets are available on a PAYF basis. The recommended donation is £20, but this can be higher or lower depending on your circumstance.

Covid-19 might mean we have to change the date, but we would be in touch with registered participants at least a week before the scheduled date if that is the case.
