How to prepare trees for regular crops of high quality fruit. A demonstration by Keith Dickson, assisted by Errol Wood. Keith is our local expert in pip-fruit production. This year he will focus on the training and pruning of apple, pear and nashi trees. Plenty of time will be available for your questions and a general discussion of fruit tree maintenance. A gold coin donation to support the activities of the Gardens will be appreciated. The Lincoln Envirotown Community Gardens are located on James Street, Lincoln, at the rear of the Lincoln Maternity Hospital. Please park on the street.
