Summer is an excellent time, even the preferred time, for pruning certain plants. Some plant species are prone to vigorous water sprouting, excessive regrowth, or diseases if pruned before mid-summer. Generally, pruning in mid-summer is done to remove water sprouts, prevent heavy sucker growth, and to control a plant’s size. In this outdoor demonstration class you will learn what, why, and how to prune in summer.

Cost: $65
