Pruning is both an art and science. Join us and explore how the practice of pruning and an understanding of plant physiology can lead to greater success in the garden. A presentation of concepts, timing, and tools will precede a field walk where specific situations will be discussed, and techniques demonstrated where appropriate. Led by Wayne Cahilly.
