Backyard Fruit Trees: Summer Pruning

Fruit trees can be right at home in a native plant garden. Timed pruning offers a simple and revolutionary approach to fruit tree care: Winter prune for shape and summer prune to keep trees small and easy. This hands-on class covers the benefits of using pruning to keep fruit trees small, the basic mechanics of pruning, seasonal routines, and general maintenance. You will leave the workshop confident in your new pruning skills and relieved to discover you don’t need a degree in agriculture to manage a fruit tree.

The instructor for this class is Ann Ralph and the location is a private garden in Berkeley.

The class is sponsored by the Friends of the Regional Parks Botanic Garden.
