SOLD OUT Pruning Workshop

March 5, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Saturday, March 5

10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Leslie Botanical Classrooms

$15 nonmembers | $10 WBG members (Members use code WBGMEMBER at checkout)


Late winter is the prime time to complete numerous pruning tasks in the landscape. Build your confidence in the task by gaining insight at the tools to have in your arsenal, learning how plants respond to pruning, and prioritizing what to prune in a shrub that seems to be all but a mess of twigs. Also find out which flowering shrubs to prune now, and which ones need to wait until later in the year. This class includes lecture, demonstration, and practical application on some woody plants.


** Due to the ongoing pandemic, this program requires all students (regardless of vaccination status) to social distance and wear a face mask. Hand sanitizer stations will be provided. These guidelines may change per local Covid restrictions or CDC recommendations.

In this case, please notify Kat Rivers at KRIVERS@WATERFRONTGARDENS.ORG or 502-276-5404 with the name of who will attend in your place. Multi-event series cannot be transferred. In the event that Waterfront Botanical Gardens cancels a class for any reason (e.g. low enrollment, instructor unavailability, natural hazard, etc.), we will attempt to reschedule the class or event. If there is no reschedule, the purchaser will be issued a full refund. Refunds are issued by check only.
