Workshop: Backyard Fruit Trees – Summer Pruning (Richmond)

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. This hands-on class covers the benefits of using pruning to keep fruit trees small, the basic mechanics of pruning, seasonal routine, and general maintenance. Attendees leave workshops empowered – that’s the word they most often use – relieved to discover that you 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 in January, 2015.
