Easy Harvest Pruning

Summer Workshops 2017


Grow your own fruit in even the smallest backyard! Timed pruning offers a revolutionary approach to fruit tree care, winter prune for shape and summer prune to keep trees small and easy. These hands-on classes cover fruit tree basics: the simple logic of pruning, how to prune for short stature and easy harvest, early training, seasonal routines, and pest and disease control. Each location offers situations you’re likely to encounter in your own backyard. You’ll leave the workshop confident in new pruning skills and relieved to discover that you don’t need a degree in agriculture to manage a fruit tree.
