You can’t learn how to prune from books. You need practical hands on experience.
Your tutor Tessa will explain the principles of pruning and which tools to use, including basic maintenance. You will then go out into the two acre walled garden, watch Tessa demonstrate, after which you get to practice on the wide variety of shrubs and trees. You will gain the confidence and knowledge to take on tasks for the future.
