Pruning Fruiting Plants

Speaker: Lee Reich, Ph.D., a horticultural consultant and writer 

The Windham and Windsor County chapters of University of Vermont Extension Master Gardeners will host a free Zoom presentation on April 24 on pruning fruiting plants.

 

Lee Reich, Ph.D., a horticultural consultant and writer, will describe correct and timely pruning methods for apples, peaches, grapes, blueberries and other fruiting plants to keep them healthy, productive and bearing the tastiest fruits. He also will demonstrate how to restore a neglected plant through proper pruning.

 

The session, which will run from 9 to 10:30 a.m., is being offered in collaboration with the Rockingham Free Public Library. It is open to all interested gardeners or homeowners in Vermont and neighboring states.

 

To register, go to https://go.uvm.edu/fruit-plant-pruning.

 

Reich, who calls himself as an avid "farmdener" (more than a gardener, less than a farmer) is the author of several books, including A Northeast Gardener's Year, The Pruning Book and Landscaping with Fruit, among others. He writes a biweekly syndicated gardening column for the Associated Press and for a number of national gardening magazines.

 

His "farmden" in New Paltz, New York, has been featured in Martha Stewart Living and other national publications and has been included in The Garden Conservancy tours. It also has earned awards from both National Gardening Magazine and Organic Gardening.
