Fruit-tree pruning seminar set for Saturday

The Purdue Extension office in Bartholomew County says that a fruit-tree pruning seminar scheduled for Saturday still has room if you would like to sign up.

Kris Medic, an extension educator, says that the seminar will teach:

  • The basics of fruit tree pruning, including “when” and “how.”
  • Goals for pruning, and the cuts that “get it done.”
  • Different kinds of pruning tools.
  • Pruning safety.

The seminar will include  hands-on practice with the trees. It will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday at an orchard south of Columbus. For more information or to register you can call 812-379-1665.
