Pruning Principles and Practices
Through course study and hands-on pruning, you will learn the best tools, techniques, and timing to use when you prune to help shrubs, conifers, broadleaves, evergreens, and deciduous plants thrive. Explore how woody plant structure and physiology influence pruning. You'll learn how to create and maintain hedges and become familiar with authentic pollarding techniques. Come dressed for fieldwork, and bring bypass pruners if you have them.
This course is also required for the Gardening Certificate.
