Spring Pruning Session
The introduction of the workshop will focus on pruning tools, proper cutting methods, disease prevention, and a general review of knowing what and when to prune.
The overview will be followed by a hands-on segment. During this time the instructor will walk the class through the thought process and action of pruning a woody plant to increase or maintain health. The early spring class will focus on pruning to increase blooms.
Participants should wear suitable outdoor clothing, including rain gear if needed. The class will be held rain or shine. Participants should bring their own hand saws, pruning shears, and loppers if possible.
Light refreshments will be provided at the end of class during a Q&A time.
