Fruit Tree Pruning


It's that time of year again when the team are joined by Chris Lanczak, the Orchard Manager from Waterperry Gardens, for the annual gathering around the fruit trees to begin pruning. The project to reduce the size of the trees began in the winter of 2009, see blog entry 'The Great Apple Prune Begins' dated 28th February and has continued annually under Chris' expert guidance and tuition.

Following last years poor summer, the fruit trees put all their energy into growth rather than crop production resulting in a lot of pruning for the team this year. If you need to find the gardeners during the next week they can found up in the trees.
