It’s only a couple of months until Spring is upon us, so now is a good time to do some Winter pruning before the trees put on their new growth.
Lots of our members have expressed an interest in learning to prune unruly fruit trees growing in their own, or in their neighbours garden. A properly pruned tree should stand up better against disease, will be easier to pick from, and will crop more fruit.
This year Artlink, based at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital will be hosting a tree pruning workshop in the orchard within the hospital grounds. It’s a beautiful place, and we did some picking there last year, so it will be great to return and show some TLC to the trees that provided us with so many apples. The workshop will run on Thursday 25th of February 4th of March from 10am til 12.
The event is open to all members of the community, and it would be great to RSVP us and them so that we know you’re coming. Our email is at the bottom of the page.
