Event description
Learn to restore mature apple and pear trees with Alan Thornton.

About this event

Old apple and pear trees need pruning differently to restore them to health and help them fruit plentifully for future decades. Alan Thornton will help you understand the theory and practice of restoring old fruit trees.

If you can, please bring along a sharp pair of secateurs, loppers and a pruning saw. Tools will be provided if you don’t have your own. Remember to dress appropriately for the outdoor weather!

Hesketh Lane is off the Dewsbury Road in Tingley and easily accessible by bus. Cars can be parked on the street.

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

This is part of a programme of short training courses that you might also be interested in: formative 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.
