September Field Day – mainly pruning demo
Hosts: John and Pru
Venue: Wainui Road South, Katikati
At: 1.00pm Sunday 14th September
Pru and John have an assortment of very old fruit trees that they have inherited plus been planting new ones so this will mainly be a pruning demonstration and will show us the training of young trees as well. Bring your secateurs as there could be time to have a go at some pieces off an extremely old plum. That is if we can reach any of it! They are also growing kiwifruit.
Some folding chairs might be useful.
How to get there:
Travel north on SH2 passing Apata (a large packhouse and a railway station on the left) up the next hill and Wainui Road South is next on the left at the start of the passing lanes opposite. From north pass Aongatete, continue on SH2 until the passing lanes and at the top of the hill to the right is Wainui Road South.
