Description: Join PHA horticulturalist/arborist Ian Jochems to learn how to take the fear out of pruning. Ian will cover techniques such as directional pruning, shrub rejuvenation and the three cut method as well as tool maintenance. Learn some basic plant physiology and how plant genetics and habits inform pruning choices. There will be in- class demonstrations and some hands-on practice. We will also venture out into the collection to observe how the plants have responded to our pruning program. All materials and tools will be supplied by the Arboretum. $20/$10 for PHA members.
