Fine Pruning The Landscape with Janet Macunovich (Big Rapids Garden Club)
February 8 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
As part of the Festival of the Arts renowned garden designer and author Janet Macunovich will give a hands on demonstration as well as a Power Point presentation on pruning. If you have ever wondered how and when to prune your trees and shrubs to ensure beautiful bloom, good shape, manageable size and healthy plants then this is the program for you. Janet will cover how well and how long popular landscape plants hold up to prunings as well as simple, proven techniques for keeping plants within the bounds you set and which plants it’s time to prune right now in your garden and how. There is pruning to be done all year but February, March and August are especially important pruning times so you will also hear what’s upcoming in whichever of those times is coming up next. You are encouraged to bring a branch—clip a limb from the plants you want to trim to make sure they are included in “how to”.
