Orchard planting and management

This page gives you a set of downloadable information sheets in .pdf file format about orchard planting and management - including pruning, grassland management and grafting. Simply scroll down the page and select one of the files listed below.

Some of these factsheets were written up as notes from the series of courses we ran in our Growing Orchard Communities project.

We will continue to add new articles/factsheets as we go along, and would welcome your feedback or suggestions via the Contact page. 

If you need an orchard advisory visit from an expert, look out for the listing of consultants and contractors in this section. You will also find our listing of specialist suppliers of orchard trees and fruit processing equipment.
