Summer Fruit Tree Thinning and Pruning for Quality
Saturday | June 17, 2017 | 2:00 pm — 4:00 pm
Common Ground Grow Biointensive Garden | 687 Arastradero Road, Palo Alto, CA 94306
This hands-on workshop will focus on two topics:
Learn how and when to prune your fruit trees in the summer to maximize fruit production and quality. For example: Should you prune apricots in August? What to do with your plum and apple whips? What to do about peach leaf curl? Find out why and learn the secrets of pruning your apricot trees during the summer.
When is less actually more? When you should thin fruit (yes- cut it off the tree!) to increase the size, sweetness and quality of your fruit harvest. For example: Learn how not to use stakes to hold up drooping and weighted branches.
Participants will get to try out techniques hands-on with the fruit trees at Common Ground Garden.
