Winter Pruning with Che Vincent

Join Riverside Education for a 2.5-hour hands-on workshop designed for busy individuals looking to learn the essentials of fruit tree pruning.

Whether you're starting with a young tree or managing a neglected one, this session will guide you through optimizing your next season's fruiting. Che, renowned for his bonsai and landscaping skills, will lead the practical workshop focusing on figs, persimmon, feijoa, and apple trees.

We'll cover key pruning concepts such as tool use and maintenance, training systems, timing, and distinguishing between different types of cuts.
Bring your secateurs, loppers, and pruning saw if you have them, and dress appropriately for the weather.

Please note that this workshop is weather-dependent and will be cancelled (or possibly postponed) if wet.
