Young fruit trees require vigilant monitoring and shaping. Mature trees need annual pruning to stay productive. Learn whether fruits are produced on spurs or shoots and how to prune for an abundance of fruiting wood.
We will demonstrate how to shape a young tree and give step-by-step instructions for pruning apple, pear, plum, cherry, apricot, peach, nectarine, persimmon and fig trees.

Do your shrubs meet your expectations? Or are they a cringe-worthy, congested, overgrown mess? 
This class simplifies shrub pruning with step-by-step instructions on how to tackle common problems. We will address how to reshape shrubs into pleasing forms, how to improve flowering, and how to prune so that you don’t have to prune often.
