Pruning is an important horticultural skill and one that many are keen to get to grips with to ensure their gardens are kept in good order for the following year. The principles of pruning trees and shrubs will be described, tools and equipment will be discussed and demonstrated and a hands-on session will be included to enable the learner to gain experience of pruning a range of trees and shrubs. We will conclude by visiting and pruning our Heritage Apple Orchard. Saturday: 10:00 - 16:00
Students may wish to progress further on to other gardening classes within the College.
