About the Course

Learn how to restore and maintain trees, both apples and pears, that have got away.
The aim of winter pruning is to establish the basic structure of the tree, reduce overcrowding, encourage it to make new growth in a controlled way and produce fewer, larger fruit from healthier, well pruned trees.

The course will be at Bore Place and start with an examination of old and overgrown trees to learn how to develop a pruning “road map” to get matters back under control.
These trees will then be compared with trees where the renovation pruning has been commenced to see how progress develops.
There will be plenty of opportunity for you to get up close and personal with the target trees and gain valuable hands on experience of the whole pruning process.
