Horticultural Triage: Assessing and Repairing Your Winter-damaged Landscape

We all know that winter is always brutal on plants, trees and shrubs, with many broken branches and limbs, animal damage, and plants drying out. Our Restorative Pruning Workshop, April 9, 9:00-11:30 am, led by the estate’s Landscape Director Debbie Merriam, will cover the basics of good pruning theory and practice, with a particular emphasis on evaluating and restoring plants that have been damaged by weather. After a brief classroom session, Debbie will demonstrate some rejuvenative pruning methods and participants will practice their skills on plants in the estate’s formal garden. Dress accordingly. Please bring safety glasses and hand-pruners if you have them; if not, they’ll be provided. If time allows, Debbie will also cover transplanting and soil health. Cost for this session is $30 for non-members; $20 for members. Space is limited; pre-registration required. To register, call  617-333-0924.
