Event Description

Join us for free advice on how to look after a young tree!

 

This training is open to all and mostly about the young apple trees approx 3 years old planted in 40 gardens in South Kilburn earlier this year. We’ll explain the basics of how to give such trees the best chance to stay healthy and give a good crop of apples and everyone will be able to ask questions.

 

When?       Wednesday 2nd November from 3-5pm

 

Where?      Meet on the green space in Stafford Close, NW6 5PP (off Malvern Road, quite near the corner with Stuart Road).

 

We’ll have a tent, chairs, tea and biscuits and will walk to neighbouring streets to look at some of the trees the project planted earlier this year.

 

When should I pick my apples?

Is there such a thing as too many apples?

What do I do about bugs and insects?

How much water do I give them?

How do I prune the tree?

etc


The training is with Lawrence Usherwood, Brent’s Tree Officer.

 

No need to book, just turn up but it will help us plan and relax if you say you’re coming. Contact:
