Planning and planting an orchard


: 10am-3pm

  • Orchard Link Course

We will start with a checklist of items which need to be addressed before you plant - what trees (varieties and rootstocks) and when to order, sward management and protecting your trees, costs and time.

Then we will deal with the practical aspects such as equipment, advance preparation of your site, spacing, layout, and planting. There follows a short practical exercise showing short-cuts on positioning trees and planting; ‘so useful, saved me hours’ remarked one participant later. Finally there’s a visit to a nearby community orchard where you can see the benefits of good planning.

£20 for members. £25 for non-members
