Description

"Bruce Crawford is great. I always learn something from him and recommend this class for anyone who wants a better understanding of when, why and how to prune correctly."
-Glenn Prince, Owner of Garden Keeper Landscape Company

In this popular hands-on, one-day course, Rutgers Gardens Director Bruce Crawford will provide both classroom instruction and hands-on training. Come learn how to properly prune while preserving a plant's natural vigor and beauty. Learn the science behind the pruning – what, when, where, and why. Then go outside and actually do it. Dress for field work and bring your pruning equipment, including hand pruning shears and a small pruning saw. You can also buy shears on site from the Rutgers Gardens.
