Taking the Fear Out of Pruning

Join PHA Horticulturalist/Arborist Ian Jochems to learn techniques such as directional pruning, shrub rejuvenation and the three cut method as well as tool maintenance. Learn some basic plant physiology and how plant genetics and habits inform pruning choices. There will be in-class demonstrations and hands-on practice. Participants will also venture into the collection to observe how plants have responded to past pruning. Tools will be supplied.

Pre-registration is required, please call to sign up.
