full calendar Workshop: Renewal Pruning

Thu, Jun 19th, 2014

10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Meet in the Wisner House; hands-on instruction will take place on the Arboretum grounds.

Are your flowering shrubs overgrown? Have you noticed fewer flowers and more pests? Join the Horticulture staff for this workshop and learn the benefits and techniques of renewal and
rejuvenation pruning. We'll discuss the difference between shrubs that bloom on old wood and those that bloom on new growth, and how that affects when to prune. We'll also spend some time in the Lilac Garden for a little hands-on practice! Tools will be provided.
