HOUSTON MUSEUM OF NATURAL SCIENCE $90
This series consists of 3 classes that will start with a two and a half hour lecture style class designed to teach you the principles of pruning and training your fruit trees.
The following two classes will be held at a private home orchard and will demonstrate to you how to prune all of the basic fruits that grow in the Houston and surrounding areas. Since classes 2 and 3 are taught outside you will need to dress appropriately for the weather.
Sat. 1/11: Class 1 is a classroom talk and photo demo on basic ideas such as: pruning tools and equipment, proper cutting techniques, timing, how to plan each tree’s next year production, and the many goals of fruit pruning for both young and mature plants. As time permits, the class will explain details about training and pruning the commonly grown fruits.
Sat. 1/25: Class 2 and Sat. 2/8: Class 3 are in the instructor's backyard orchard, using what was discussed in Class 1 to study the application to particular fruits. Class 1 is a prerequisite. Class 2 explains pears, apples, berries, peaches and plums by demonstrating on specific plants what should be done. Class 3 continues with persimmons, grapes, citrus, pomegranates, figs, and as time permits other semi-tropicals.
There are no refunds on classes.
