Free Fruit Tree Pruning Demonstrations

Pin It
I'm so excited about our garden this year, particularly our fruit trees! The pic above, left is one of our peach trees from last year. WOW. What a difference a year can make- it looks huge now! We have 2 apple trees we planted early last year, but we won't let them fruit until next year.

We pruned our peach trees last week, after watching about a zillion YouTube videos telling us how to do it. A free fruit tree pruning demonstration would have been super handy! Here are a few being held around the Davis county area this month, courtesy of the Ogden Botanical Gardens.
