    Just got back from the Tuesday pruning class and I am so glad I went. Tell your friends to come - especially people which have pruned for a while, learning from books. The methods have changed! Learn how it is done today.

    I have a question. There are 2 dates listed. Is it a 2 day course or is it being given on 2 days. I could make the Saturday but not Tuesday. Is it necessary to attend both if it's a 2 day class?

      You can come to one or both, up to you

    Certain fruit trees are not always available for plantation I think that by pruning we can utilize what is available of such trees and over come such cases, like at present I am looking for Seville orange trees to plant which is popular in the Mid-East and not so popular over here. looking forward to improve my knowledge also to meet people.
