Knowing how to prune fruit trees correctly is the key to getting the best out of them, allowing you to control the fruit's size, shape and vigour. Run by the President of the Rare Fruit Society of South Australia, Harry Harrison, and John Sandham, the president of the Botanic Gardens Australia New Zealand Association, this workshop covers the equipment used and how to use them correctly, when to prune fruit trees and the techniques to get the most out of them. There is also a field tour of Mount Lofty Botanic Garden's fruit and ornamental trees and a demonstration of the techniques to apply to new and old trees.
