Complete management of your Home Orchard

Sunday 20th May at 10am

Whether you are starting from scratch with a wish for bountiful fruit hanging from your own fruit trees, or rejuvenating those old and neglected trees hiding down the back of your yard, its really is very simple to have highly productive and healthy fruit and nut trees at home, if you have the right know how...

Discussing site selection, soil health, environmental influences, irrigation, pollination and companion varieties, pest and disease, summer and winter pruning, and crop protection, as well as answering all your nagging orchard questions, this very popular workshop will ensure no matter what stage your fruit trees are at, or even if you don’t have any at all yet, that you can plan out and confidently plant and care for your orchard both now and for years through the seasons well into the future.

Presented by Harry Harrison. Harry is the President of the Rare Fruit Society.
