Summer pruning at The Old North Stables

We have about 50 cordon apple trees at the stables. Grafted during a Worcester Orchard Workers course they are now 5 years old and growing well. To ensure they are easy to pick and provide lots of fruit there is a programme of pruning and they are due for their summer prune. Summer pruning limits the growth of the tree while winter pruning stimulates that growth.
We will have a pruning workshop at the Stables 11am Saturday 15th July 2017 when the emphasis will be on summer pruning but we can talk about all things concerning apples. Everybody is welcome and you may just turn up on the day although it would be appreciated if you could drop us a line at
