January talk: HOW TO PRUNE - So You Don't Have To Prune So Often by Christina Pfeiffer

Thursday, January 9, 2020

Meeting at the Center for Urban Horticulture

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that you all had a great holiday!

Our January talk features horticulture writer, consultant, and educator Christina Pfeiffer speaking on "How to Prune - So You Don't Have to Prune So Often". I have lots of trees and shrubs to keep in shape in our rather small city garden so this is a great topic for me. Winter is a busy season for gardeners for cleaning, pruning, and conditioning so I'm sure her talk will help us to minimize the work that we have to do!

Here is a brief bio of Christina:
