Love your fruit! This one-day course for beginners and more experienced gardeners covers the essentials of pruning and looking after fruit trees and bushes. It includes plenty of practical experience in summer pruning with techniques that can be applied in winter too.

The course will combine classroom-based learning with practical training, and will cover:

  • appropriate tools for pruning and plant care
  • general pruning principles and practice – applicable to fruiting and flowering trees, bushes and shrubs
  • specific pruning and planting techniques, including a range of wall/fence training techniques
  • an overview of other fruit care and maintenance tasks.

The tutor is OrganicLea’s Fruit Grower Marlene Barrett, supported by our Fruit team.

There will be an hour for lunch, between 1pm – 2pm, and please bring your own lunch.
