Pruning – Crafting a Beautiful Landscape – Pruning is done to remove parts of the plant that are no longer useful. There are many reasons why these parts might no longer benefit the plant. Some reasons are functional and will improve the health of the plant. Other reasons are purely aesthetic and will enhance or change the look of the plant. Either way, pruning can be a form of art if it is done well and results in a healthier, more attractive specimen. March 19, Saturday, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. $13/$10
