Summer Fruit Tree Pruning

This workshop is part of the Plenty Permaculture Garden Essentials workshop series.

Summer pruning follows hot on the heels of the summer fruit season, and is typically the best time to prune plums and peaches which are susceptible to winter diseases. We will review the techniques and theories covered in winter and you will have an opportunity to see the orchard in full flush, taste some of the heritage apples you pruned earlier in the year, and practice your pruning. We will also look at how to prune evergreen fruit trees including citrus, feijoa and avocado.

Two dates to choose from for Summer Fruit Tree Pruning

Due to everyone’s busy schedules, we’ll be running parallel and identical Saturday and Tuesday courses. (Tuesday hours, 9:30-2:30, intended to be parent-friendly)

Saturday 29 February 2020

Pests & Diseases 1

This workshop is part of the Garden Essentials workshop series.

When plants are sick or being attacked it can be devastating for a grower. During these two days, we cover how to be a super sleuth to identify the cause of the problem, evaluate what actions should be taken and a range of organic pest and disease management strategies are provided. You will be introduced to the theory of the economic threshold to take action which can save you both time and money. During these sessions we will be on the hunt for bugs to view under the USB microscopes. Kazel brings her expertise from being a Crop Monitor to the class, with strategies for both commercial and home garden situations.
