Tour of Maya's Fabulously Fruitful Garden
Maya’s garden is full to bursting with beautiful fruit trees including 32 apples, persimmons, cherry guavas, feijoas and citrus.
Using grafting and pruning techniques, she has created an edible hedge of her fruit trees with a combination of espalier, cordon and other interesting shapes. In this session, Maya will introduce you to her garden and the planning behind it.
