A workshop conducted by Greg Quinn

Greg Quinn of Home Orchard Care has spent over twenty years working on private and commercial orchards in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.  He now provides maintenance services for backyard fruit trees, from new plantings to neglected trees.

Greg says:

“Not unlike people, fruit trees can often either be cured of pests and diseases or with help can live on for a time with the ailment. Regular and correct pruning in combination with a basic spray programme can ensure many fruitful years for the home orchard”.

A $5 koha per person will be appreciated as cash at the workshop.

Garden tools and plant containers of a wide range of sizes for sale.
