Fruit Tree Pruning

  • Sunday, April 2, 2017, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

If you grow fruit trees, it’s important to know how to prune them correctly to promote yearly fruiting and reduce disease problems. At this hands-on demonstration at Indian Creek orchard, orchardist Steve Cummins will demonstrate pruning and training techniques for both young and mature trees, including dwarf, semi-dwarf and standard trees. Species covered will include apple, peach and plum trees.

Pre-registration is required. Call 272-2292 to register by phone or go here to register online.

The pruning demonstration will take place in the orchard so please dress for the weather.

Hands-on grafting will NOT be offered at the pruning workshop this year. Anyone interested in grafting can contact Greg at Cummins Nursery to schedule a custom grafting workshop: gregdov@gmail.com
