Summer Pruning Workshop

Summer Pruning Workshop: fruit tree and berry bushes

by Jason Ross

Summer pruning is great for encouraging fruiting of established trees and
shrubs, it helps keep them small (great for espaliers) and discourages
watershoots.

At the Summer Pruning Workshop on Waitangi Day, Saturday 6 February,
you will learn hands-on as you practise summer pruning of fruit trees
and berries.

We will prune:

plums

apples

pears

blackcurrants

gooseberries

grapes

raspberries

Bring warm clothes, gloves and sharp secateurs.
