DSCN4116Pruning Apples (and Pears) and Espalier Basics

Apple and pears produce fruit on older wood and encouraging spur development produces more fruit. Espalier trees are great for spur production. The class covers the basics of apple/pear tree pruning and discusses how to develop an espalier tree. This workshop is the last in a series of co-sponsored classes with City People’s Garden Store.  Call City People’s at 206-324-0737 to register.
