Pruning/training fruit trees/bushes Course

16th September @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


This workshop gives a detailed and practical introduction to formative, maintenance, restorative and disease pruning. We grow a wide selection of fruit trees and bushes. From apple to pear, quince, medlar, plums, aronia, currants, raspberries, morello, grape and more. Pruning trees at planting time is very important because it will determinate the overall health and yield of the plant for many years to come. You will learn many tips to grow your own fruits. Training trees is a very good way to optimise the space in a small garden.
