Fruit Tree Pruning 101


Saturday, January 16
from 10:00am to 12:00noon
Gardens Meeting Room with Di Scott

When it comes to basic care and pruning of fruit trees, there are many different techniques, several of which have predictable results. This class will help you to optimize performance from your fruit trees, according to your own needs and the specific environment in which the trees are growing. The spotlight will primarily be on, but not limited too, the pruning of fruit tree varieties appropriate to the North Coast climate,specifically apples, pears, and select stone fruits. Learn how time of year and type of pruning cut can greatly influence the success of your fruit trees. We will cover a complete year’s cycle of tree growth – from the tree’s perspective as well as our own.

Di Scott brings 17 years of coastal orchard experience and a lifetime of horticultural knowledge to this class.

Class size is limited; please reserve your spot by phoning 707 964-4352 ext. 16 or in person at The Garden Store at MCBG.
