In this session, Justin will cover the different pruning methods for common backyard fruit trees with a specific focus on things to do in summer. You'll see several different techniques in action in the garden's sprawling orchard including espalier, and learn tips and tricks for your pruning schedule and managing common pests and diseases. This session is perfect for those working with new and established fruit trees in their own space.
