Winter Pruning

An ideal course for those new to pruning or requiring a refresher.

The course consists of both indoor and outdoor instruction on a range of orchards. Trainees will be given plenty of time to practice and must bring their own saws and secateurs and wear the appropriate outdoor clothing.

Course objectives include:

  • Learn the basics of how different pruning cuts affect growth and cropping
  • Appreciate the importance of tree shape and light interception on yield and quality
  • Gain confidence and ability to make pruning decisions quickly and correctly

We can arrange for you or your staff to attend any of the following courses. If there are sufficient numbers, the courses can be held on your premises (subject to having the correct equipment and facilities).

Basis and NRoSO points will be available where applicable.
