Longney Pruning Workshop #1

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Thanks to those who helped us with pruning the apple trees at Longney on the first of two workshops by GOT on Tuesday 11 May 2021.

After being shown around the orchards, collections, habitats and barn, twelve keen GOT members and associates were given tuition by orchardist Martin Hayes before having a go themselves.

This week attention was on medium sized apple trees.  Plums are next – on 18th May (https://glosorchards.org/home/blog/2021/04/25/pruning-workshops/)

We are always keen for volunteers to help maintain the orchards, particularly with hand-weeding.

Please get in touch with Ann Smith via the website if interested.
