Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop – July 2016

August 30, 2016

Fruit trees are not only productive but they can also give structure to a garden while providing shelter, shade and a food source for wildlife. The eye-catching blossom is attractive to pollinating insects and brings welcome colour to a spring garden.

A successful Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop was recently held at the Garden in conjunction with the City of Yarra and the Mark Street Gardeners. A pruning expert -Sebastian Beck from the Diggers Club gave us an informative talk and demonstrated how a tree’s structure can be improved by following a few simple rules. John raised some practical challenges of the pruning of the fruit trees at the gardens. He has been seen busy pruning the fruit trees recently perhaps expanding on his already extensive knowledge.
