This course will teach you about pruning a variety of small trees and shrubs, whether that be for shape or production. Pruning can sometimes seem overly complicated, so a big aim of the session will be to discuss the main principles and boost your confidence levels.
This talk, hosted by Avon Organic Group (AOG) is being given by John Lucas. As well as being chair of AOG for many years, Jon was on the management committee of HDRA for 10 years, which has since become Garden Organic.
