Learn to prune apple and pear trees (in winter). Course includes • Aims of pruning • Equipment • Fruit tree forms – and when to prune each • Formative pruning (ie 1 to 3 years) • Pruning established trees • Take away cribsheets. The course includes some theory, but mainly demonstrations and practice. So participants can prune their own trees!
I have been growing fruit for 15 years and my passion is apples. I have developed an orchard of over 50 varieties of apples, pears and plums. Grown in many different forms: step-overs, espaliers, cordons, ballerinas and standards. I graft (whip ‘n’ tongue) all my own trees, and have experimented with apple crossing (creating a new variety). I am in the Northern Fruit Group. I have been running tours at Farlands for 5 years, but only recently on AirBnB.
Our smallholding covers two acres and includes woodland, a large veg garden, orchard and several paddocks. In addition, there are three cordon lines of fruit trees and two nursery beds with fruit trees.
