We came, we sawed, we pruned...

Having lost two workdays in a row due to bad weather, we decided to hold a mini-workday today. People who had attended the pruning workshop last summer, plus a couple of others who had viewed the DVD we made of the event, gathered to do some light pruning of the young trees. We were happy to find that they were in good condition, and we're hoping for a vigorous year's growth ahead.

Our next Wapley Work Morning will be on Saturday 16 March - details will follow here.
