Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop with Expert Colin Carpenter

A full day workshop in the allotment orchard was held on Saturday 22 February 2020, with Colin Carpenter (who supplied the trees for People’s Park Orchard).

A great day. Colin is extremely knowledgeable and with his guidance we got a lot of pruning done. Weather was good with quite a bit of sunshine and some strong winds.
