Summer Pruning Workshop

The VanDusen Botanical Garden presents Summer Pruning Workshop. Take a seasonal look at pruning and learn why, where, and how to cut plants, and how they will respond. Learn to prune before plants set flowers for the following year, and how to decrease suckering by slowing the plant’s response to pruning, and why thin-barked trees such as Japanese maple, birch and magnolias are pruned in summer. Class includes a walk in the Garden to demo proper techniques and observe the results of past pruning. Max. 15 students.

Cost:  $80
