Pruning is a skill best taught by practice. Join us for a day of pruning, and work directly with Duke Gardens' horticulture staff to discuss methods, choices and long-term goals in pruning small trees and shrubs. You will see renewal, rejuvenation and structural pruning demonstrations. As staff members make pruning decisions, they will discuss their choices and show you various options for improving the health of the plant. All materials included. Please bring a lunch. Instructors: Duke Gardens horticulture staff members. Location: meet at the Doris Duke Center. Qualifies for Home Horticulture Certificate elective credit (5 hours).
