Fruit tree care

Winter Pruning Course

Saturday, 20th November 2010, 10am to 2pm

Donkeyfield Community Orchard, Brunstane Road South

As the sum­mer prun­ing course went down so well, we will be run­ning anoth­er (winter) prun­ing course on Saturday 20th of November at the Community Orchard (off Brunstane Road South).

This is a second oppor­tun­ity to learn about shap­ing and train­ing your fruit trees, how to keep them in good con­di­tion and to get the best fruit from them. Ideal if you have just pur­chased a Fruitful Porty tree or have exist­ing over­grown trees in your garden!

This course will be com­pletely out­doors, so please wear suit­able cloth­ing and foot­wear for a morn­ing out­side and it would be a good idea to bring your own garden­ing gloves if you have them.

Cost per per­son £10

Places are lim­ited, so please book in advance by con­tact­ing Peter Upton at, or call 0131 258 4483
