Work morning in the orchard

Now that Spring is approaching there is still lots of work and maintenance to be done. Chris Davis led our session. First he pointed out that some of our apple trees have a disease called canker. This is very damaging to our apple trees and can easily spread. Chris pointed out examples and explained how to deal with it. This involves cutting away the affected parts of the tree. If any members visiting the orchard see canker on the trees, please let Chris know.

Chris also lead a quick demonstration on pruning before the orchard members began pruning our apple trees.

And finally… our soft fruit bed received a well needed prune.
