Our Head Gardener, Tina has been busy in the Mill Garden pruning the apple and pear trees.
January and February are the idea months to prune as the trees are in their dormant stage.
When pruning look to create an open goblet shape and take out any dead, diseased or damaged growth. Also look for any branches that rub together or criss- cross.
Tina also recommends sharp tools for a clean cut which is less damaging to the tree and sturdy boots as the ground can be super slippery at this time of year.
Entry to the Mill Gardens is free. We look forward to seeing you soon.
