Winter Pruning Course

Saturday, 20th November 2010, 10am to 2pm

Donkeyfield Community Orchard, Brunstane Road South

As the summer pruning course went down so well, we will be run­ning another (winter) prun­ing course on Saturday 20th of November at the Community Orchard (off Brunstane Road South).

This is a second oppor­tun­ity to learn about shap­ing and train­ing your fruit trees, how to keep them in good con­di­tion and to get the best fruit from them. Ideal if you have just purchased a Fruitful Porty tree or have existing overgrown trees in your garden!

This course will be completely outdoors, so please wear suitable clothing and footwear for a morning outside and it would be a good idea to bring your own gardening gloves if you have them.

Cost per person £10

Places are limited, so please book in advance by contacting Peter Upton at peter [at] pedal-porty [dot] org [dot] uk, or call 0131 258 4483
