A Pruning Workshop at Astmans Orchard, Longney, organised by GOT for the Three Counties Traditional Orchard Project at Astmans Orchard, Longney  Grid Ref SO 760140.  Thanks to Angela Scrivin.

This is a great opportunity to learn the skills of pruning stone fruit, which should only be pruned in summer, at Angela’s plum orchard. Martin Hayes will lead the workshop. This is 3 acres of traditional mainly Excalibur plum orchard (a lovely dessert & culinary variety) with some apple trees.

As ever please be aware of uneven ground, bring sun protection, bring lunch/drinks and something to sit on. There are toilets and food at The Anchor Inn, a couple of miles south.
