Fruit Pruning with Chris Bird at Minstead Study Centre

Saturday 3rd February 2018 

10.00am to 3.30pm 

Hands on practical day with Chris Bird. Senior lecturer at Sparsholt College, Chris coordinates the Colleges RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden, winning seven gold medals. He has also recently published The Fundamentals of Horticulture for the RHS.

Fruit trees that are not pruned become congested and unproductive. During the day you will learn how to improve the health and productivity of trees by appropriate pruning. The course will provide participants with practical skills through hands on experience of the renovation and ongoing pruning of trees and will cover all types of tree from recently planted to mature and trained examples. Although concentrating on apple trees Chris knows everything there is to know about fruit and there will be the chance to look at currants and berries as well.

The course is limited to 12 places to ensure that all participants have ample opportunity for practical work. No prior knowledge is required. Please feel free to bring your own tools (for example secateurs/pruning saw) although some tools will be available at the Centre.

Tea & Coffee provided and homemade soup for lunch.
