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 teaches the simple logic of pruning. You’ll learn the benefits of creating short trees, how to engage in pruning as a conversation, make aesthetic decisions, trust your judgment, and learn what the tree has to teach about pruning.
Instructor Ann Ralph’s Grow a Little Fruit Tree, about keeping fruit trees at people-appropriate heights, is newly available from Storey Publishing. She managed the fruit tree department at Berkeley Horticultural Nursery for ten years.
