Pruning Shrubs

Pruning can help minimize disease, direct growth and lessen future problems. Bobby Mottern, director of horticulture at Duke Gardens, will discuss goals, methods and timing while demonstrating proper pruning techniques on several shrubs. You will see demonstrations of structural pruning techniques, renewal pruning and hedging methods, along with tool and safety reviews. Meet on the stone patio behind the Doris Duke Center.

This will be a small group program that takes place partially seated indoors and partially outdoors traveling on a combination of paved and unpaved paths with some uneven surfaces and moderate inclines. Parking fees apply ($2/hr.).
