December pruning of the espalier Pears

Volunteer gardeners pruning December 8th 2011
 Pruning the espalier pears has been proceeding all autumn and into the winter. There is a competition running at the moment to count the number of pear trees in the 6.5 acre garden and around the walls. All will be revealed later in 2012 when the results have been judged and booby prizes awarded at the gardeners BBQ in January. Estimates have been ranging from the twenties to the hundreds. 

There are still plenty of pears on one or two of the trees, even in December.
