Shrub pruning

Learning Lab Classroom of the Dennis and Judith Jones Visitor & Education Center

Have you ever wondered why one Lilac bush is a gorgeous sight to behold in spring, and another looks like an upright beaver dam? The difference is probably pruning. A well pruned shrub is healthier, will flower better and add more beauty to your landscape then a neglected one. There are many different shrub pruning techniques, each suited to different types of shrubs and different functions they serve in the landscape. In this class we’ll discuss how to get your shrubs looking their very best with the right tools and techniques!
