Late autumn is one of the best times to prune for plant structure. The foliage has fallen, revealing the limbs and form of the plant.
In this workshop you will learn structural pruning techniques for specimen shrubs, small ornamental trees, and young trees. Learn to maintain the plant's natural character and create a strong branch structure, eliminating future problems. Get hands-on practice in the field with a trained horticulturist.
Katrina Lewin has a Bachelor's degree in Ornamental Horticulture from the University of Illinois and has been a horticulturist at The Morton Arboretum since 2004. She enjoys teaching pruning and plant identification classes and is a frequent speaker at local garden clubs.
