Saturday, 18th February 2017, 10am to 1pm (limited places available)
£12 per ticket which includes the course and refreshments/soup lunch afterwards.
Robert Boyle will be running the pruning course.
Robert was trained at Pershore Horticultural College before going into commercial nursery work for a number of years. A period in private estate garden management followed. More recently, he has run his own organic fruit growing enterprise and plant nursery near Monmouth with his wife.
Robert will bring some trees and soft fruit bushes for sale on the day. All he requires of you is to bring as many sharp pruning tools as you can. Also, a few additional steps or pruning ladders could be helpful but he will be encouraging everyone to carry out as much pruning as possible from the ground.
- formative pruning of young trees
- renovating older mature trees
- common pests and diseases
- soil fertility
- fruit varieties for domestic growing
