Come to Sky Nursery on Saturday, March 2, for our FOURTH Annual Prune-a-Thon. We will offer free pruning classes on two stages throughout the day. See below for topics and times. A bevy of professional garden designers will offer free 15-minute garden-design consultations, so bring along a photo of an area in your garden that needs reworking.
As always, we will showcase our popular gallery of pruning horrors and offer great information on pruning the right way. We will be joined in offering information and advice by some of our sister organizations, such as the Master Gardeners, the Garden Hotline, and the Seattle Tree Fruit Society.
