Brought to you by The Diggers Club

Your workshop

Winter is the perfect time to get into the orchard and tidy up all your fruit and nut trees, to then achieve the best possible crops later over the warmer months. No matter what fruit trees you're growing, it's important to do some basic jobs that will keep your trees happy and healthy.

This historically popular workshop will cover:

  • Tips on pruning and training to maximise your harvest
  • Soil preparation
  • Fertilising
  • Pest and disease control

All the 'must do' winter tasks will be covered, leaving you feeling thoroughly prepared to rejuvenate and provide the ultimate winter care for your orchard, no matter its size.

Your Presenter

Julian is the Head Gardener at St Erth, where he is curator of the espalier orchard, the food forest, and the bulb meadows, and he is a highly experienced market gardener and passionate fork to fork foodie!

The Location

Featuring over 4 acres of food, cottage and bush gardens each season provides different delights and inspiration to both experienced and aspiring gardeners. The gardens are filled with plants which thrive in central Victoria’s cold winters and hot dry summers. A huge range of daffodils, hellebores and other flowering bulbs bring the garden to life in spring.

Visitors can admire the colour and beauty of our perennial flower borders throughout summer and autumn with hardy, long flowering perennials creating an amazing cottage garden display amongst our Australian bush setting.

The Garden has been certified organic since 2008 and Digger’s range of perennials, bulbs and heirloom vegetables are grown at St Erth using the best organic methods. Seasonal produce from our kitchen gardens is served at St Erth café throughout the year.
