Did you miss the Spring 2017 pruning workshop at Houston Gardens?

This workshop covered dealing with conifers, deciduous shrubs, deciduous trees, and fruit trees.  As your trees and shrubs grow, they need direction. Pruning, thinning or removing weak, dead, storm damaged, branches leads to healthier structure and enhances its appearance.  Good pruning can promote health, vigor and positive growing patterns to your trees and shrubs. When it comes to fruit trees, proper pruning can stimulate the formation of flowers and fruit buds. Pruning is generally done every few years.

We will be offering this same workshop again this Fall, stay tuned for more information.
