Megginch Castle Walled Garden
In this practical workshop, you will learn the difference between various types of restrictive training of fruit trees with reference to physical examples. Find out what are the best rootstocks to use, whether you want a large fan-trained cherry or a step-over apple – and how to produce them yourself from a maiden tree. The importance of summer pruning for restricted forms will be discussed, observed and carried out, on the heritage fruit trees of the walled garden at Megginch. Full details will be sent nearer the time.
