If you don’t know what you’re doing when it comes time to pruning your orchard, or perhaps you think your trees could be fruiting more than they do? Then you’re going to love this class.

At the end of this 4 hour, hands on class, you will have the confidence, know how and ability to prune and care for your fruit trees, including Citrus and Espaliering.

My experience comes from a 26 year Horticulture career and an Advanced Diploma of Horticulture, but more importantly from the experience of having an orchard of over 100 different fruit trees and 46 different Citrus in my last garden for over a decade.

You’re going to learn:

  • the three guidelines for pruning

  • what tools to use

  • how and when to prune

  • and also learn how to get the best crop from your orchard.

There’s a booklet that includes tips on how to get the most fruit from your tree and even a guide to the best varieties to plant. I’ll share tips on how to prune an overgrown and unruly tree, and I also explain Curly Leaf and how to control it.

To finish this class we will enjoy a Ploughman’s lunch incorporating the preserves I’ve made from my own fruit trees.
