About the Course

Summer pruning encourages flowers to set and increases fruit yield. Instruction also applies to pear trees.
The course will start at Bore Place, looking at the apple trees that were pruned during the January pruning course to see how well they have responded, as well as trees that remain overgrown. The course will then move to Mike’s garden where you will see well established apple trees that have been maintained over a number of years, and learn how to summer-prune them to encourage flower set, fruiting yield, restrict growth and consolidate the establishment of form following winter pruning. There will be plenty of opportunity to gain hands on experience.
The course will be rounded off with a Kentish cream tea with homemade jams and scones (hopefully in the sunshine!).

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials included. Free hot drinks. Complimentary Kentish cream tea at the end of the day



Want to review this course?

I would like to thank Amanda, John & Mike for an excellent course & what a delightful way to spend a sunny summer day! It was an added bonus to have the apple pressing & juice to drink at lunch time. The theory of pruning was explained & demonstrated clearly & I now feel confident to tackle both winter & summer pruning. I hope u will continue to run these courses & I will certainly recommend them.
