Summer Pruning Fruit Trees

May 28, 2022 @ 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Summer pruning fruit trees is a must to maintain tree health and promote next year’s production. Join Texas Master Gardener Robert Marshall and Extension Horticulture Agent Stephen Brueggerhoff to learn best methods for pruning peach, pear and plum. Included is a review of fruit tree species growth and habit, open center versus central leader pruning, and general maintenance tips. Half the program is presented indoors, remaining program will be hands-on pruning in the Discovery Garden orchard in Carbide Park. Bring your personal hand-pruning shears. Registration is required.
