Pruning Workshop

We had 22 participants attending the two-hour workshop, led by certified arborist Jen Kettell from Radiant Leaf Consulting and previously a horticulturist at the Arnold Arboretum. Jen led the group through the basics of pruning techniques, equipment and safety issues before heading out into the gardens to demonstrate on common later-blooming shrubs and vines including witch hazel, grapevine, hydrangea, Rose of Sharon, and butterfly bush. At each site, gardeners were given a hands-on opportunity to apply basic techniques.


This is first in a series of three workshops this spring.
