This workshop gives a detailed and practical introduction to formative, maintenance, restorative and disease pruning through theory, orchard observations and pruning demonstrations. It's designed for people with no previous pruning experience. By the end of the day you will have the skills to make informed pruning decisions on a wide range of trees. The main tree shapes discussed are open-centre (bowl shape) and central leader (Christmas tree shape). As much of the afternoon will be spent outdoors, weatherproof and extremely warm clothing (particularly warm footwear) is absolutely essential.

Our Big workshop weekend offers a range of full-day courses to choose from. You can take a single course or two courses over the weekend. Our courses always get positive feedback from participants and you will benefit from on hand expert tutors with years of experience in their field. The weekend format also offers you the opportunity to meet like-minded people and to spend some time in our gardens, orchards and woodlands in beautiful East Clare.
