The sun was shining for our soft fruit pruning workshop at Mitcham Orchard on Saturday 23rd February.
We were joined by Sarah-Jane from The Orchard Project and both new and old faces to learn the basics of pruning apple, pear and quince trees. We also replaced a dead plum, a casualty of the hot weather last year. This was a gift from The Orchard Project - thank you!
We trimmed off dead, damaged and diseased wood and opened up the shape to allow for more light and hopefully fruit to grow in the summer.
