Summer Fruit Tree Pruning

Join Justin Calverley for a pruning master class

Over 50 people have attended this class


Due to popular demand we are running two Summer Fruit Tree Pruning workshops with Justin in 2024!

Join horticulturalist Justin Calverley to practice your skills and learn the benefits of summer pruning your fruit trees. The session includes both theory and practical components to ensure you will leave the workshop with the confidence to conduct your own fruit tree pruning.

Bring your gardening gloves, a hat and a pair of very clean and sharp secateurs.
