About the event

Martin Allen will show you how to care for your apple trees using the orchard at Drumduan School as an example.

This workshop will leave you in great shape to make the most of your own trees whether the desired outcomebe fruit quality and yield or healthy form and shape. While focusing on the practical aspects of winter pruning, participants will also learn about the wider aspects of organic growing and plant care.

Martin is a local self-employed gardener. He moved to the area 10 years ago to work in the walled garden at Newbold House. The garden housed a heritage orchard containing over 70 trees. Since then, he has broadened his knowledge, studying at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh and continues to learn and share his knowledge through his freelance gardening role, working in both private and formal public gardens, and educating both children and adults.

Equipment: please bring gardening gloves, secateurs / pruning saw (if you have them). If not, there will be a limited number available to borrow.

Clothing: please wear stout shoes / boots and warm clothes. A waterproof jacket may be needed.
