Friday 26, Saturday 27, Sunday 28 June 9.30 – 12.30
Whether you have a small garden with just a few fruit trees, or you want a large orchard, winter is the time to plant deciduous fruit trees. This workshop will look at the soil preparation, planting and training of young deciduous fruit trees.
$65 + GST
Winter is also a traditional time to prune deciduous fruit trees. We will also show you how to maintain mature fruit trees, cleaning up and pruning, to shape trees, minimise disease and maximise fruit production.
Orchard and soil health, fertilising and watering will be covered.
To share their breadth of knowledge we have passionate fruit tree grower and member of the Rare Fruit Society Chris Day ( Every Day Sustainable Living http://everydaysustainableliving.com/about/ ) and sixth generation orchardist Wez Redden, who has been helping me with fruit tree pruning for more than 20 years in my orchard here at Sophie’s Patch and at other properties.
Numbers are strictly limited
This is a practical event held in winter. Please be sure to wear appropriate warm, wet weather gear including a rain jacket and boots. 🙂
