A two day practical workshop close to Shaftesbury studying Japanese training and pruning techniques of pines.
The June sessions look specifically at midoritsumi - pinching out of buds, while September looks at momiage - the thinning and needle plucking. Both days cover training and general pruning, and include both P. sylvestris and P. nigra, as well as the relevant tools and equipment needed.
This is quite advanced stuff!
