Event Description

VanDusen member: $55 / Non-member: $62
This course with long-time VanDusen gardener, Casey Werfl, takes a seasonal look at pruning, with focus on flowering shrubs, and renovation pruning.

Casey will give a brief overview of the universal guidelines and logic for pruning, and some basic botany to help you understand how plants respond to being pruned. Class will cover knowing when and how to prune flowering shrubs for maximum blooms, and how to rejuvenate a plant and stimulate lots of new growth through renovation pruning. Course will include a walk in the Garden to examine plants in need of pruning and how to do it, see the results of past pruning and demonstrate proper techniques. Dress for the weather.
