Workshop on Pruning
As a part of the Library's seed library program, expert plantsman Russ Miller discusses how to prune: why, when and where to cut on a variety of plants. Pruning is is very invigorating for plants, and keeps them healthy and vibrant. The dead and diseased wood must also be removed. If you want to participate in pruning, bring a hand pruner.
