Backyard Fruit Trees – Winter Pruning Workshop – Berkeley

This event has passed.

Timed pruning offers a simple and revolutionary approach to fruit tree care: winter prune for shape and summer prune to keep trees small and easy. Whether you need to get fruit trees off to the right start or work with what you have, this hands-on class covers the benefits of using pruning to keep fruit trees small, the basic mechanics of pruning, season routines, and general maintenance. Attendees leave workshops empowered – that’s the words they most often use – relieved to discover that they don’t need a degree in agriculture to manage a fruit tree.

Instructor Ann Ralph managed the fruit tree department at Berkeley Horticultural Nursery for ten years. Her pruning book, Grow a Little Fruit Tree, will be available from Storey Publishing early in 2015.
