Pruning the Pears

Pruning the Pears
End of October and the pear harvest is drawing to a close. The Thursday volunteer gardeners began to tackle the pruning under the watchful eye of the Deputy Head Gardener. They were looking for this year's new soft growth and pruning back to the second bud. The shapes look wonderful in the depths of winter and allow plenty of light and air for next year's growth.
The walled garden will be closed to the public now until April 1st next year but this internet journal will continue  through the winter to keep you up to date with the restoration.
