Be inspired by the different forms and patterns of our espaliered fruit trees – apples, pears, quince and nectarines grown in the Babylonstoren garden. Winter is the best time to admire these structures in their dormant simplicity, also to plant and prune for summer fruits.
Pruning pro Anton Roux helps us to plan before planting and will also give tips on selecting the best trees for espaliering. Secateurs in hand, he’ll guide us through the different stages of shaping an espaliered tree from year one to ten. You’ll also start your own espaliered tree to take home as a souvenir.
Lunch will be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price. For hotel guests, the workshop is included in your stay.
