Take the guesswork out of pruning by discovering what to do and what not to do and why. Become educated in pruning cuts, plant anatomy and how plants heal themselves to promote plant health. Learn about selecting the right tools for the job and how to use them. A morning classroom session is followed by a practicum in the afternoon at TBA.
