Last weekend we ran two workshops at the same time, both at Wick Court, Arlingham. Martin Hayes led a workshop on the skills of summer pruning on old and young trees in the orchards around Wick Court. At the same time Jim Chapman led a group around the estate discussing how to ‘read’ the orchards, combining historical research and field observations to work out how the orchards developed over the centuries.
Here’s a brief slide show of some of the day’s activities:
Thanks to the Three Counties Traditional Orchard Project for sponsoring these events.
