Healthy Garden, Healthy You: Pruning Your Shrubs and Trees the Right Way

Join Nancy Heber for a demonstration with live branches to show the correct way to prune so your plants will thrive and look beautiful! Do you have a particular shrub that you’re wondering about? You can bring a cut branch (no longer than 30 inches) to the class. Also included in this session is a discussion of how to properly “deadhead” your flowering plants to prolong their bloom time.

Nancy Heber is an emeritus horticulture instructor for National Garden Clubs and has been a resident of UA since 1961. Nancy’s yard has been featured on multiple garden tours of Upper Arlington and Columbus through the years. Additionally, she has two nature photography books in publication. One is about gray squirrels and the other is about the metamorphosis of the Monarch butterfly.
