Summer Pruning Workshop, with Chris England

 

About the workshop:  An introductory lecture is followed by a hands-on workshop (under Chris’ watchful eye). Using the demonstration fruit trees in the orchard of the Burnley Gardens you’ll learn to summer prune fruit trees to get maximum fruit. Chris will also demonstrate how to get fruit on espalier fruit trees. Hands-on workshop. Small group. For beginners or as a refresher for more experienced pruners.

About Chris: Chris started his interest in horticulture when working at an orchard in Warrandyte. He graduated from Burnley, worked in retail nurseries, ran a garden maintenance business and grew espaliers as a hobby.  This hobby blossomed into a business creating formal and informal espaliers – Merrywood Plants.  Chris now sends his high quality espaliers all over Australia.
