He wants to provide you with the most aesthetically interesting trees while delivering a level of fruit production that will satisfy even the most novice of gardeners in their yield. Fruit production can be a lot of fun and the fruit enjoyed all year round. 

This 4 module course provides instruction and recorded demonstration of pruning. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and we'll have a live Q&A session with James the first part of March (date to be advised).

This four module course will include: 

  • The Basics. Correct and Necessary tools and techniques for the best results in the yield of your fruits. 
  • Stone fruit pruning. How best to prune, peaches, plums, nectarines apricots, and other stone fruit. These techniques are unique to stone fruits as they produce their fruit on different growth than other fruit trees.
  • Pome, fruit pruning. Pruning apple and pear types of fruits is a little trickier since it is typical for the fruit to be growing on older wood that must be planned and pruned for.
  • Pruning vines. Grapes are a wonderful home crop where juice and jams can be enjoyed and proper trimming can be both aesthetically, functional and delicious
