Apple guru to lead fruity workshop
Apple guru Neil Macdonald – the man behind the Orchard Pig cider brand - will be leading what is billed as a “fruit-filled day of learning and fun” in Marlborough later this month.
The third annual Apple Workshop will take place in The Enterprise Centre at St John’s Academy, Marlborough from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, February 23.
The workshop – organised by Marlborough Community Orchard - will cover choosing varieties and rootstocks for small gardens, planting fruit trees, after-care and pruning, including how to train espalier, fan and cordon trees.
Illustrated talks will be followed by discussions and advice, Q&A, hands-on demonstrations and practical experience.
