Pruning and Care of Summer Fruit with Steve Malsher | Preston Bissett Nurseries and Country Shop | Saturday, 27. June 2020
Steve Malsher works as a RHS Horticultural Tutor, Consultant and Professional Gardener. He heads up the Specialist Projects team at Nicholsons and is a lead on pests and diseases and is an expert on the pruning of all garden plants including large shrubs and trees.
Learn the basics of pruning the Prunus family of fruit trees (plums, cherries, gages, peaches, and apricots) and how to regenerate the Malus family (apples and pears). We begin with appropriate tool use and care, making the correct cuts. This is a talk and demonstration, so make sure that you arrive dressed for some outdoors teaching! We begin under cover with the main theory and discuss all aspects of pruning and what tools to use. This is in the form of a PowerPoint presentation.
