April is the month of magic in the world of fruit trees, when blossoms explode in a gorgeous display of possibilities! Spring is the perfect time to learn, practice and plan for maintenance and pruning of your small fruit trees. In this 2-part, 4.5 hour class, we’ll discuss tips and techniques that will help you keep your fruit trees healthy and happy throughout the year.

You will learn about:

  • Pruning techniques for espalier trained trees or fully dwarf trees
  • Fruit trees that you want to keep under 6 feet tall
  • The benefits of spring pruning, compared to winter and summer pruning
  • Why and how to thin fruit in May
  • Common fruit tree pest issues in the PNW No-chemical strategies for maintaining healthy fruit trees

This workshop is appropriate for both beginning and intermediate gardeners. Class dates are Wednesday, April 20; 6-7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 24 ; 11 a.m.-1 p.m. The Wednesday evening class will take place on Zoom, which you can use on your computer or phone. The Sunday portion will take place in small groups of up to 12, in order to prioritize everyone’s health and safety.

We will be following current public health recommendations. During these hands-on days, please be prepared for outdoor activities, dress for the weather and plan to wear a mask. A detailed outline with recommended resources will also be provided.
