In this presentation, our first sponsored by the Seed Lending Library at the new downtown library, Ann Ralph shares a revolutionary approach to fruit tree care that’s perfect for backyard gardeners: winter prune for shape and summer prune to keep trees small and easy. You’ll learn about the simple logic of pruning, the benefit of creating short trees, and how to prune for short stature and easy harvest. The class includes information about seasonal routines and pest and disease control, with ample time allowed for questions.
