Learn the principles of backyard orchard culture with Angelo Eliades from Deep Green Permaculture.

When fruit trees are not properly maintained, they can become overgrown and hard to manage. Harvesting, netting, pruning and spraying become needlessly difficult, and the glut of fruit produced all at once is usually lost to birds and possums!

Backyard orchard culture is an innovative system in which high-density plantings of fruit trees are maintained at a small size for easier maintenance. Using this technique, it is possible to produce excellent yields without excess and waste, while extending your crops throughout the year.

In this online webinar, Angelo will cover pruning, pest & disease management, feeding and general fruit tree care. He will also explain which productive plants and companion plants can be planted beneath fruit trees.
