February

Winter Top Fruit Pruning – – Sat February 3rd 2108 and Sunday, February 4th 2018 ( Repeat of Saturdays course)

Course registrations and starts 10.00-12.30pm (theory) ( At: Hungerford Town Hall, High Street Hungerford RG17 0NF) 1pm Lunch – 2-4pm ( practical) in the orchard.
£85 per day (inc VAT) which will include lunch.

Join Orchard Arborist, Pomologist and owner of the Heritage Fruit Tree Company Nursery – Andy Howard for a day’s training course to learn the theory and practice of Winter Pruning. (Andy grew up in Hungerford and now lives across the Border in North Oxfordshire but returns on a regular basis to work in, and design and plant Orchards throughout Berkshire.)
.
Learn the theory, skills and practice of winter pruning for fruit trees such as apple and pear. Discover the different methods and techniques used to shape fruit trees, control their size and influence their productivity. Find out when and how to apply these to suit different circumstances and different types of top fruit. Learn the difference between winter and summer pruning and when and how to prune pip fruit and stone fruit.

You can learn these new skills and put them into practice with hands on tuition whilst working on Hungerford’s beautiful Picket Mead-Heritage orchard, working on unique fruit trees left untouched without any pruning undertaken during the past 60/70 years.

Gain these skills yourself and help to get the confidence to apply them in your own orchard, garden or community orchard. Or, why not help a neighbour get their fruit trees into shape?

The pruning course will cover all you need to know on pruning : From working on these majestic old trees, formative pruning on any newly planted future trees and how to practice a form of renewal and restorative pruning.

If you are thinking of just planting one tree, or an orchard all the information and hands on practical learnt will be useful when selecting your trees and also knowing how to manage them afterwards throughout their life and into maturity.

This is a winter pruning course but we will also look at how it relates to summer pruning and how both are important in the management of your fruit trees, cordons, fans and espaliers.
