Our webinar on June 5th will have a video showing Bob Baines demonstrating his technique for thinning fruit and pruning branches at the same time. This technique is appropriate for apples and pears over the next month or so. After the video Bob will answer questions.
We will still be having Richard Fairfield talking about the new support structures for the Kiwis and Blueberry netting, but instead of blueberry pruning we will have a video with Kiwibob teaching how to winter prune kiwis. Kiwis need to be pruned twice a year, in January and July. We already have a video with Kiwibob on how to do the summer pruning of kiwis at the bottom of this page. This video on winter pruning of kiwis has never been shown because although he did this class in 2017, I didn’t get around to editing it until now. (Kim Siebert)
