Pruning is used in orchards and forest gardens to improve yield, health and access. Getting it right involves understanding the growth patterns of the plant you are pruning, to guide it into putting less of its energy into woody growth and more into fruit.  This course will introduce the principles that underpin all pruning, and how they apply to apples, pears, plums, cherries, currants, gooseberries and cane fruit. The main course is two hours but there will be an opportunity in the afternoon for those who want to practice what they have learned to do so in a community orchard.

Cancellation policy

There is a £2 cancellation charge to cover registration costs. If you need to cancel, please do so as far as possible in advance to give someone else a chance to take the place. If I have to cancel a full refund will be given.
