About This Class

  • Do you stand in front of a tree or shrub and wonder what to prune?
  • Are you afraid that you will kill the plant?
  • Do you ask yourself why a plant needs to be pruned?

If these questions sound familiar then this course is for you.

This course will take you through the complete process of pruning trees and shrubs. It is designed for the gardener that wants to understand their plants better, and use pruning to produce healthier plants that produce more blooms.

I am a big believer in learning the "WHY" and not just the "HOW". Once you understand the why, the how becomes so much easier to learn and understand. In this course I will explain how woody plants grow, and what effects pruning has. Then I will show you how to prune.
